Codes In The Clouds
Codes In The Clouds hail from Dartford, England. The group weave melodies with an alluring and versatile combination of qualities: melancholic yet uplifting; polished yet unhinged; delicate yet powerful. Their heartfelt music firmly placed the band as ones to watch in a growing instrumental rock scene.
The band steadily gained recognition through relentless touring after signing to Erased Tapes in 2007. Codes In The Clouds’ first single Distant Street Lights / Fractures won instant acclaim from BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens and became Single of the Week on Drowned In Sound. Their debut album Paper Canyon (2009) and second studio album As The Spirit Wanes (2011) earned the band an international fanbase and critical acclaim.
An open call for remixes from fans and artists led to the release of Paper Canyon Recycled (2010), featuring reworks by the likes of Paul Mullen from Yourcodenameis:milo, Maybeshewill and Library Tapes; including label colleagues Nils Frahm and Rival Consoles. The band received over 100 track submissions and every remix album sold continues to help environmental charity Friends of the Earth.
2019 sees Codes In The Clouds celebrate the 10 year anniversary of Paper Canyon with a special limited edition vinyl re-issue on Erased Tapes and also the long awaited release of their new self-titled album through Hobbledehoy.
Codes In The Clouds are: Ciaran Morahan, Stephen Peeling, Jack Major, Joe Power and Pete Lambrou.
