When The Cloud Explodes
Manchester was bathed in unseasonable sunshine yesterday, the tower in Piccadilly's grey concrete for once backdropped by blue skies, blue skies for as far as the eye could see. Manchester three piece The Empty Page released a single yesterday. The group describe themselves as feral and frantic and both words are apt on this release. When The Cloud Explodes is a frenetic, punk response to Manchester's usual weather, pissing dark grey rain and the way it forces people to create art, stuck indoors while sheltering from the weather. From the fuzzed up guitars to singer Kel's twin vocals to the pummelling drums there's plenty here to love. Buy it at Bandcamp.
