Blissful electronics veering into shoegaze ambience...
'Cloud Cover'

Rising solo artist GLOK launched a fresh project earlier this year.

Realising that he had amassed a huge number of unreleased tracks, the electronic boffin decided to unfurl them one by one.

Available on the first Friday of each month, the series is rapidly building up into a fascinating dot-to-dot coalition of off kilter gems.

New cut 'Cloud Cover' airs on Clash, and it fuses distorted acoustic guitar with flute samples and swirling electronics that build up into clouds of digital sound.

It's reminiscent of the somewhat overlooked Boards Of Canada record 'The Campfire Headphase' in its ability to match the organic against the digital, with the guitar effects leaning towards the shoegaze end of the noise spectrum.

Wonderfully fully-formed, 'Cloud Cover' has an admirable dedication to sound, with faint traces of Kevin Shields' fingerprint on the production.

He explains: "'Cloud Cover' started life from a sample of a child's musical toy with a worn out battery. So it’s natural that it became a warped, sleepy lullaby."

Tune in now.
