Previously Featured Tracks
’You Know’ by Colorfeels
I am happy to reveal that the Music of Nashville-based indie-pop quintet Colorfeels is as good as their press photo. Indeed, the band are as much masters of the perfect pop-harmony and blending of genres, as they are of band photography.

’Girl’ by Squaresville
What’s not to love about Danish music? Luckily Aarhus-based Squaresville encapsulate everything I love about Scandanavian music – rich melodies, unique pop sensibilities and great accents.

‘I’m A Conservative’ by The Eversons
On listening to I’m A Conservative I was convinced that indie-pop four piece The Eversons were English (British sounding accents, being a ‘Conservative’). However to reinforce the stereotypes in Flight of the Conchords, they are in fact from Wellington, New Zealand, they’re also great.

‘Mattias’ by Pope Joan
Pope Joan was a legendary female Pope during the Middle Ages. More appropriately, it is the name of an art-pop band from Brighton. Filling the shoes of someone so historically significant can’t be easy, but with songs as well crafted and infectious as these, they manage pretty well.

‘Remember’ by Gacha
Admittedly the music of Georgian-native Gacha might not be the typical band featured on Cloudcorner but it's great nonetheless. Luckily, the combo of lo-fi electro instrumentation and reverb-ladened sound turned out to be an irresistible one.
