THE Clouds have had a resur­gence back into the Aus­tralian mu­sic scene af­ter sup­port­ing the likes of Blondie and Cyndi Lau­per.

The Aus­tralian in­die rock band first burst on to the mu­sic scene in 1990 and seven years of suc­cess fol­lowed be­fore they de­cided to call time.

They re­formed in 2011 and started this year with a bang with the re­lease of a new sin­gle, Ma­bel’s Book­shop.

Af­ter a na­tional tour as a sup­port band ear­lier this year, The Clouds are ready to head­line their own tour of Aus­tralia in cel­e­bra­tion of their new sin­gle Beau­ti­ful Noth­ing­ness.

Drum­mer and White Gum Val­ley res­i­dent Raphael Whit­ting­ham said the new sin­gle was truly a cross-coun­try project to com­pile.

“Beau­ti­ful Noth­ing­ness was recorded in three dif­fer­ent states,” he said.

“The drums here in White Gum Val­ley, some gui­tars in Mel­bourne and the rest near Wollongong, south of Syd­ney.

“We are all feel­ing quite en­er­gised and look­ing for­ward to play­ing to­gether and also along­side our old friends (sup­port band) Fall­ing Joys.

“I’m look­ing for­ward to hav­ing Perth fam­ily and friends come along as well as play­ing in my hood and Jodi (Phillis – vo­cals/gui­tar) and Tr­ish (Young – vo­cals/bass) have al­ways loved Freo and the South Freo strip.”

The Clouds will per­form at Me­trop­o­lis Fre­man­tle on Novem­ber 10.
