Marissa Nadler has announced her new EP, The Wrath of the Clouds, out 4th February, as well as a cover of ‘Seabird’, originally by the Alessi Brothers.
Fresh off of her 2021 full-length LP, The Path of the Clouds, the EP features two covers and three previously unreleased tracks written during the Path sessions. To Nadler, rediscovering The Wrath of the Clouds’ songs felt “like uncovering lost gems that I had forgotten about,” and the result is a beautiful release as rich and essential as its predecessor.
Listen to ‘Seabird’ below…
The three original tracks on The Wrath of the Clouds all swim in similar waters as Nadler’s last release, but expand on her sonic and conceptual expertise. “Guns on the Sundeck” is written from the point of view of the eerie Queen Mary ship, whilst “All the Eclipses” sees the return of Amber Webber of Black Mountains as a featured guest. In “Some Secret Existence,” Nadler layers her voice atop sparse and tasteful guitar work, illustrating her ability to build a dense and beautiful world with not much more than her harmonies. The Wrath of the Clouds closes with two covers. “Once I had finished the album, these two covers were on the top of my list,” says Nadler. “These were a really nice capping off to the season of this writing.”
Tracklisting as follows:
- Guns on the Sundeck
- All the Eclipses
- Some Secret Existence
- Ferry Lane
