The Luminary is proud to present Cloud Nothings with The Wytches and The Brainstems on Thursday, July 17.
Cloud Nothings was founded in a Cleveland basement, the one-man recording project of Dylan Baldi, an unassuming, then 18-year-old student of song with a breathtaking ear for melody. Prolific from the start, Baldi’s early work was rough but immediate: crudely recorded, spring-loaded spasms of Buzzcocks-informed pop that quickly found an online following among the lo-fi-inclined. When an opportunity presented itself to open a small show in Brooklyn, Baldi abandoned a still-in-progress final project to be there. The gamble paid off — he’s been touring ever since, using every available break to write and record more.
Hypnotic. Arabian funeral. Depression in the desert. Sepia rainbows.This is the psychedelic nightmare spun by The Wytches, who are spreading their subversive message across the UK in the dark guide of SOS surf riffs, desert riffs, melancholic shuffles and a kaleidoscopic stage performance that will put you under.
The group gained a strong following from their debut single and self-produced video "Digsaw," and have been gaining in notoriety ever since, thanks to their spellbinding live shows. Think Nirvana's "Bleach," The Arctic Monkey's "Humbug," The Horros' "Strange House," and you're halfway there. Because with songs that make you feel dirty to single, and undeniable rhythm that will have you moving against all efforts to resist, The Wytches are a band you will not easily forget.
