The Last Clouds new indie electro single ‘Origin’ from EP
“Illuminism” released 20/1/23
The Last Clouds are Matt Schott and Al Quarterman An Electronic Indie band spawned from the mean fields of Cheshire.
You’d have to go back to ’86 and Jean Michel Jarre’s live shows to even start to understand the depth and complexity of some of the immersive soundscapes of The Last Clouds’ keys and synth wizard, Al Quarterman can produce. Mix in a good measure of Violator era Depeche Mode and season with a little Blade Runner and you might just start to get the picture. Matt punctures the maelstrom with a soaring vocal which fits perfectly in between the layers. The result is a dense mesh of thumping beats and washes which sucks you in; the gear changes, the arching choruses, the stop-start and boom of it all, pretty awe-inspiring.
