I heard this ages ago, wrote myself a little note to check it out, then lost the note and have today just found the note. James Owen Fender is a new artist that is beginning to receive a lot of good chatter from all the people you want to notice you. So largely me blogging the track will do little-to-nothing in furthering his musical career.
The Cloud is possibly the most Northern idyllic, indie-pop song to come about in a long time. I really like it. The more I listen to it, the more I seem to smile.
And, the icing on the cake is that it is filmed in Filey. My Dad and lovely step-family live there. And The Boyfriend and I have incredibly fond memories of visiting. We'd love to go now, but it is such a tourist seaside town that we can't get a bus there this time of year. And whenever we go it is always basically cloudless skies. Just like the video.
So I'll dedicate this to my Dad and step-family. And the featured charity shop.
