Cloud Nothings - "Psychic Trauma"

Cloud Nothings are set to follow up their triumphant 2012 album Attack On Memory with the new one Here And Nowhere Else, and first single “I’m Not A Part Of Me” was an absolute ripper. You could say the same about “Psychic Trauma,” the second song they’ve shared. The track builds from plainspoken indie scuzz to an absolute guitar whirlwind with the sort of assurance that very, very few bands can pull off. Listen to it below.

Here And Nowhere Else is out 4/1 on Carpark/Mom + Pop. Cloud Nothings are playing Stereogum’s SXSW Day Party, and I fully expect that song to kill there.

  1. Two for Two now with ‘Not a Part of Me.’ Loving the In Utero, ulcerated scream going on here. This band is so much fucking fun to listen to.

  2. Looks like Baldi’s finding a good balance between “Attack On Memory” and his older, more pop influenced material. Looking forward to hearing the whole album.

  3. i completely agree with you homesickalien. this shit is great. also looking forward to the whole thing.

  4. I’m loving these first two songs but I’m dying for another slow builder a la no future/no past. Still though, I’ve got confidence they know what theyre doing :)

  5. Album is getting pre-ordered now!

  6. I really like them :) Nice stuff!
