Majical Cloudz is Montreal-based songwriter Devon Welsh, with producer and live collaborator Matthew Otto. Their introspective brand of synth-driven music is characterized by an almost architectural desire for balance, crafting songs that are as sonically minimal as they are emotionally complex, equally reliant on negative, hollow space and lush, warm textures. Welsh bares his soul through carefully articulated stories, oriented around themes of death, patience, family and desire. Their live performance is deeply expressive and raw, Welsh's rich baritone woven into intricate stories amidst washes of white noise, filtered synths and sparse thuds.
Following an acclaimed EP released on Arbutus Records in 2012 titled Turns Turns Turns, Majical Cloudz is thrilled to announce their signing to Matador Records. Along with news of the signing, Majical Cloudz has released a Yours Truly session for the track "Turns Turns Turns," which can be viewed here. The band will embark on a North American tour later this month with Autre Ne Veut, making a stop in Austin at SXSW - upcoming dates can be viewed below.
Stay tuned for details on Majical Cloudz Matador debut, which will be out later this year.
