For a band that started on a whim, entering the local University band comp was a turn of fate for Blue Mountains Rock & Rollers Cloud Control. Forming just 3 weeks prior, they took out the title and turned their songs and winnings into a self titled EP which saw them pick up a bunch of local accolades, including Sydney’s Fbi Radio SMAC award for Best Newcomer and the opportunity to tour with Vampire Weekend, Supergrass, Josh Pyke and Yves Klein Blue. After paying their dues on the tour circuit for two years, the band released their critically acclaimed, debut album Bliss Release (Ivy League) in May 2010. The album has gone on to win Best Independent Record at the Australian Independent Music Awards as well as collecting 3 ARIA award nominations and a J Award nomination for Triple J album of the year. Having recently toured the country to sold out audiences nation wide, Cloud Control are heading back over to the UK for the month of November to release and tour their UK debut single with Infectious Records (home to The Temper Trap, Local Natives) before returning to Australia to getting ready to see out the year at some of Australia’s best known Summer Festivals.
