Cloud Nothings are angsty as ever on their new single, “Modern Act,” the first take from their upcoming fifth album, Life Without Sound. All the elements of their distinctive sound are still there: introspective lyrics, gravelly vocals and clunky lo-fi instrumentation. That being said, the song is one of the band’s most upbeat, even though it’s still far from happy. They seem to be getting more comfortable with stepping outside of their traditional moods while hanging on to the overflowing energy that makes their music so great. Check it out below.
