In keeping with his tradition of prolificacy, Ben “Cloudkicker” Sharp has released a new song this week in the form of a one-track EP – Hello, which has been released for free download along with art prints of the impressive artwork for sale. It makes for a slight change once again for Cloudkicker. This song explores more droning ambient soundscapes, and doesn’t have any of those big riffs that so characterises many of his prior releases.
It fizzles for the most part, feeling like it’s building to an eruption of sorts but instead just meanders away after ten minutes of droning, it’s rather toying when you think about it but also strangely beautiful, much like all of Cloudkicker’s music, but whether or not it’s indicative of the next album/EP is another thing entirely.
