Single Serving: Majical Cloudz – Silver Car CrashLeave a Comment
Montreal electronic band Majical Cloudz (Devon Welsh and Matthew Otto) have a strong back catalogue of mellow, electro-pop fit for your melancholia, but “Silver Car Crash,” the first single from their forthcoming album Are You Alone? out Oct. 16th, is some of their strongest work to date.
Inspired by the Andy Warhol painting “Silver Car Crash (Double Disaster)” Majical Cloudz‘ “Silver Car Crash” is a lush and emotional undertaking. Amongst a sparse soundscape, broken up periodically by some skittery electronics, Welsh sings in a notably higher register about love’s overwhelming weight and, like The Smiths declared, that “to die by your side is such a heavenly way to die.”
