Majical Cloudz made a mini-doc on their tour with Lorde last fall + composed an original score for it- a great look into this amazing band (new album coming this fall on Matador). Check that and recent Pitchfork BTS on some of Devon’s early work leading up to MC, including early songs featuring Grimes.
Majical Cloudz is music and performance. Rooted in solo material written by Devon Welsh between rural Ontario and Montreal, he joined with Matthew Otto to collaboratively produce and perform the music. Their performance is deeply expressive — strong vocals sit on top of washes of white noise, filtered synths and sparse thuds. The songs are intensely lyrical, oriented around themes of death, patience, family, and desire. The live show celebrates the joy in sadness and the value of a shared musical experience.
