French Dreamgaze Atmospheric post-black outfit, Cløudy Skies, are set to release their most recent LP, Changes on January 20th, 2023 on Argonauta Records. Changes is a great and apt name for the album, as it just can’t seem to find one distinct path through the din, at least musically. There is an extreme heaviness to everything, buried under a mountain of hall reverb. Changes features whispery, breathy vocals that have a very “gothy” tone that sounds borrowed from other artists, almost to a fault. However, to state that Changes has any one dimension that carries across the whole album is untrue. Cløudy Skies 2023 LP, Changes, has managed to be a confusing offering that is as generally interesting to listen to as it is odd, as if reaching for something unattainable. 

Imagine if someone mixed Marilyn Manson, Type O Negative, Deftones, and Gaerea. It’s an album that constantly battles between slow, fast, and boomy at all points. Don’t count on getting a particularly long, restful interlude to settle into. The music tends to wander, meandering between moody, droning, and refraining back into the murky blackness of much darker music. There are moments on the album where I just ended up saying “aand there’s the Manson part” only to make the same assertion moments later, a la Deftones. That is not to state that one part was bad, per se, but only to recognize that there are half a dozen identities on the album, some eccentric, some traditional.
