Cloud Nothings, Cleveland-based lo-fi pop group founded by Dylan Baldi, has announced a new and extensive tour covering most of the U.S. and parts of Europe and Australia. Their first stop is tonight (Fri., Sept. 26) at the William Pitt Union in Oakland. Originally a solo project, Cloud Nothings was born as one of a series of fake bands created by Baldi on MySpace as platforms to release his original music. It quickly gained both recognition and actual members before signing with Bridgetown Records and opening for groups like Woods and Real Estate. Most recently, Cloud Nothings released sessions for Spotify and KEXP, as well as third full-length album, Here and Nowhere Else. The new work explores a more detailed approach to song writing and production, intertwining powerful melody with noise-rock.
