About Cloud Nothings
Sometimes the best ideas can come to you in your parents' basement. At least if you're an aspiring rock musician with dreams of one day fronting your own band.
That aforementioned dream came true for Dylan Baldi, who went from recording vocals and instrumentals in said basement to stepping out on stage in front of thousands as the lead singer and guitarist of Cloud Nothings. Originally the outfit was a one-man band featured on Myspace mostly for Baldi's "personal enjoyment."
The irony here is that Cloud Nothings was used as nothing more than a name for a fictitious band, but the recordings posted online caught the attention of management at Bridgetown Records, and later got the ear of underground rock promoter Todd Patrick. He invited 'the band' to perform in New York, and Baldi pulled together help in the form of a drummer (Jason Gerycz) and bassist (TJ Duke) for the live performance. The initial reviews were enough to prompt Baldi to drop out of college, and he signed with Carpark Records in 2010.
Fast forward some four years and Cloud Nothings is now four albums into a career that has these indie rockers on an upward trajectory. Their latest album, "Here and Nowhere Else" was released on April 1, 2014 and earned an 8.7 out of 10 rating on Pitchfork and earned a spot under the site's "Best New Music." It went all the way to #2 on the CMJ Radio charts, and Cloud Nothings toured Europe and a number of huge festivals – including Bonnaroo and Pitchfork – in support of the project.
Review of Cloud Nothings @ Irving Plaza | 10/7/14
On Tuesday night at Irving Plaza, Cloud Nothings played their largest ever headlining show in New York City. The Cleveland band worked through their fast paced set with a workmanlike nonchalance, delivering fast-paced, finely tuned takes on songs from their two most recent records, 2012’s Attack on Memory and Here and Nowhere Else, from 2013.…Read more
