Winter is coming, but along with it will come the new album from Cloud Nothings. The Cleveland indie-punkers have returned with "Modern Act," the first single from an album called Life Without Sound that's due January 27. "Modern Act" is one of frontman and songwriter Dylan Baldi's sunnier compositions, with a simple and yearning chorus of "I want a love / that's all I need lately" and the band's instantly recognizable chugging groove. The name of Cloud Nothings' album imagines a silent existence but it's great to hear their distinctive take on indie rock in our ears again. Stream "Modern Act" below and check out Cloud Nothings' tour dates as well.
