After three years spent largely in a self-inflicted darkness perfecting the album, Carousel Clouds are now ready to step into the limelight. Recorded with Ding (The Fall, Pixies, Cabbage), and for the most part at their Salford base, The Ranch, the record boasts ten tracks of ‘Ghost-Gaze’ – shoegaze-meets-prog songs, all sprinkled with pop melodies. Shadowy themes continue lyrically, encompassing ominous Tales of the supernatural, of spirituality, loss, and of the afterlife.
