CloudKid Presents Paper Idol - Clouds
The quirky feel-good producer and songwriter Paper Idol takes us straight to Cloud 9 with his latest dreamy single ‘Clouds’. Staying true to his now notable signature sound, the track effortlessly fuses his influences of indie-pop and EDM into something surreal and unique… a new element altogether. It’s a track with that nostalgic touch that makes it feel like it’s been by your side for many years already; the guitar riff and melodies pulling hard on your indie heartstrings, while the twist on the beat and synth drop fill your cravings for that dancy electronic bounce.
He explains: “I was on the brink of quitting music. The pandemic had just hit, I felt pulled in so many directions and had no inspiration to create. One day, I was taking a walk and the chorus melody for “Clouds” came out of nowhere; from there, the song flowed out in a matter of hours. Funny how a song about my confusion put me back on track”
