Video of the Moment #2229: Cloud Boat

London electronic duo Cloud Boat released a new EP in mid-October. ‘Man of War’ represents a significant shift in sound for the production pair from ‘Model of You’, their second album that was released in the summer of 2014. On their newest effort, the title track single sees lead singer Tom Clarke’s vocals put through a far more echoey filter than on their last album, giving the track an almost psychedelic feel. Also, instead of the dreaminess of past successes like ‘Hideaway’, ‘Man of War’ the song has a far more confrontational approach, offset in part by the eeriness of faraway-sounding synth notes. One guess: reflective of what’s going on in our society at the moment? Watch the promo video for ‘Man of War’ below, a collection of moving images related to the excitement surrounding and the subsequent disorientation of spaceflight.
