“Does anybody living out there really need me?” is what Cloud Nothings wonder on their new single, “Am I Something,” from their forthcoming album The Shadow I Remember. It shows that, even though the ten-year anniversary is approaching for their debut album, not much has changed about the bands’ insecurities and contemplations.
“I became familiar with Lu Yang’s work through her exhibit in Cleveland, Ohio at MOCA Cleveland in 2017,” vocalist/guitarist Dylan Baldi noted about the music video in a press release. “I was really drawn to her approach of tying religion into gender and various gendered bodily functions. The animation style of some of her work is also exactly on my wavelength—like a psychedelic genderless Sims game. Very excited to be able to work with Lu!”
On January 29, the band will be reissuing Turning On for its anniversary. The Shadow I Remember arrives February 26 via Carpark Records. Listen to “Am I Something” below.
