CloudKid Presents Paper Idol - James Bond
Idol… Paper Idol, gets his licence to thrill with the release of his fresh single ‘James Bond‘. Unleashing his most dancey and funky side yet, the single continues to truly build the hype ahead of his ‘Mania Days‘ EP, out June 25th! Coining his sound as ‘delusional pop’, we can definitely see why with James Bond. Leaving us shaken and stirred, his songs tell surreal stories about confusion and mania, all stylishly dressed-up into a sonic blend of indie and electronic influences.
He explains: “James Bond is the third chapter of the story in my upcoming EP, Mania Days. It’s a dark comedy about a musician who’s mistaken for a spy and captured by a bloodthirsty double agent. The James Bond films have so many ridiculous tropes, so it was fun to pull apart the story and turn it on its head”
