New Cloudkicker!

Beautifully and brilliantly conceived in the mind (and home studio) of Ben Sharp, Cloudkicker has been one of my favourite bands over the last couple of years. Cloudkicker has developed from metal into something more akin to post rock or perhaps post metal, with an acoustic detour thrown in there to spice things up. But throughout certain elements have been constant: Hypnotic droniness, complexity, dynamic arrangements and weirdly catchy riffs. With the new EP, Subsume, Cloudkicker and Ben Sharp has returned somewhat to his metal roots. The aesthetic is still post rock-y, somehow, but the guitars have been tuned down again and the heavy grooves are back. Excellent.
