Cannons and Clouds debut full length, "After All".
“Your foot swings swiftly… When you smile and when you sing your blues… Slim Slow Slider fills the cracks within an empty room… As she sits captive…”
These lyrics are just a snippet from the title song (and opening track), a swelling piece of choral music (just two voices mind), and are sung with such enormous force that, together with the words, sweep you up and away - kinda shot from the cannon into the clouds, if you like. By force I really mean conviction, because it’s obvious from the very start that this 5-piece band is totally unwavering in their approach to what they do. And what they do is completely and utterly beautiful, with a care that would keep a newborn baby safe in a tsunami.
I have me a hand-numbered numbered copy (7/300), lucky me, and I shall have it always, this eclectic mix of chamber pop and alt. rock, this futuristic baroque orchestral classic, this glorious addition to the scene that exists in San Francisco.
