A Cloud of Ravens - Another Kind of Midnight
“Their sound, though inspired by bands of their youth, is not rooted stubbornly in the past – their music feels of this time, with their messages transversing the cosmos.” – Post Punk
“A Cloud of Ravens impress not only for the dark poetry which forms and develops in the band’s lyrics, and expands in their alluring titles, but the duo also rivet through their gritty and immediate sonic scheme which feels pitch dark and hard as nails.” – Destroy // Exist
“they play cold wave, they play post-punk, they are Gothics, and they set to music some of the most striking lyrics you can find out there” – White Light // White Heat
Formed by children of the ’70s and ’80s- longtime proponents of underground culture, Brooklyn, NY’s A Cloud of Ravens weave arcane tales of love, loss, faith, life, and what loom beyond, amidst a wall of dense synth tones, ringing guitars, tribal rhythms, and myriad echoes of dubious origin, for your listening pleasure.
Beth (bass guitar) and Matthew (guitar/vocals), inspired by their longstanding and shared admiration of bands and artists that defined the stark, minimal dramaticism of the initial post-punk era, and all its related subgenres, forged the nucleus of A Cloud of Ravens in the fall of 2018, immediately self-releasing their first single, closely followed by the Sacred Hearts EP, then their inaugural full-length album In the Wicked Hours, marking their place in the burgeoning contemporary scene.
The duo signed with American independent label, and longstanding gothic rock institution Cleopatra Records to issue their new full-length offering Another Kind of Midnight.
