CLOUDNONE & DIRECT REVEAL FULL ‘GUILTY PLEASURES’ EP
Out via MONSTERCAT
Words: ARIEL JO
CloudNone & Direct have collided once again for their stunning ‘Guilty Pleasures’ EP, out via Monstercat. Featuring a core theme of late-night maneuvering, the first single from the release, ‘Told U’ was revealed back in October. Now, the full three-track nocturnal journey is available to stream across platforms.
The latest CloudNone and Direct collaboration begins with the EP’s title track, ‘Guilty Pleasures’, a reflective three-minute journey through sound. The audibly melancholic timbre is balanced by the glimmer of hope it elicits through its ruminatively glistening electronic production elements.
‘Slip’ follows, and kicks off with a mellow, subdued tone, with a hushed, dusky vocal trickling in not too far behind. Meditatively pensive throughout its entirety, the emotive tune sonically evokes deep introspection, in turn leaving the listener in a calm, relaxed haze. Overall, the second track on the ‘Guilty Pleasures’ EP is an atmospherically entrancing opus, rife with a palpable fervor.
Rounding out the 3-track release is ‘Told U’. The nearly four-minute musical endeavor immediately starts with a rising tension that’s built ever-so steadily with each passing second. Rolling basslines, a distorted vocal, and glitchy soundscapes characterize the remainder of the synth-laden, heady offering.
