Cloud Boat

Book of Hours

Inital copies come with a bonus CD - 'After Hours' - a live set. Apollo present the beautiful debut LP 'Book of Hours' from Cloud Boat aka London duo Sam Ricketts and Tom Clarke. This deep and dreamy debut brilliantly showcases them as part of a generation for whom electronic production and songwriting are far from separate worlds similar to childhood friend James Blake. Soft-edged but monumentally huge bass tones in 'Youthern' support Sam's Ennio Morricone-esque guitars and Tom's velvety folk lament. 'Drean' is even more bare, a fingerpicked acoustic ballad with insidious waves of background guitar that well up, sounding both ancient and sci-fi despite having none of the obvious signifiers of 'futuristic' electronica. On 'Wanderlust' Tom hits a liturgical tone, a hymnal yearning filling the song as a cloud of Burial-like crackles rise up around it creating pressure despite their delicacy and showing how it's possible for Cloud Boat to maintain intensity with the most unlikely source materials.
