Heavy The Eclipse, Clouds’ new album tells the story of a dystopian Glasgow 400 years into the future.
Heavy The Eclipse is the Scottish techno duo’s second album, following 2017’s HTID: Heaven-Sent Tekno Impakting Dancefloors, Or Hardcore Till I Die, also released via Electric Deluxe. It tells the story of a dystopian Glasgow 400 years into the future—”After numerous waves of social collapse, Glasgow, a once prosperous city thriving off an industry of trade and shipbuilding, had run to waste in lawless ruin,” the label explains. We’re told to expect “ravaged and warped breakbeats haunted by wailing euphoric noise, vivid and graphic reflections of fractured post-industrial hardcore, moments of poetry flashing within a thick impending fog.”
Heavy The Eclipse is streaming on SoundCloud, accompanied by this website.
Electric Deluxe will release Heavy The Eclipse on November 23rd, 2018.
