Codes In The Clouds, the quintet of Morahan, Peeling, Smith, Major and Power from Dartford, Kent have found a firm place in the vast growing instrumental rock scene. With their harmonious and blissful sound they weave guitar melodies, liable to explode any minute. If you still can’t imagine intense music without vocals then you will be surprised how easily these boys will let you forget this prejudice. Energetic and charming at once, surprising and unpredictable at all times.
With a debut record produced by ex-yourcodenameis:milo man Justin Lockey ready to go in early 09, via Erased Tapes, this Kent-based quintet find themselves on the cusp of what looks to be a very promising career Ones To Watch / Best New Music – Rock Sound
Codes In The Clouds signed to Erased Tapes Records in 2007 and quickly received critical acclaim from the likes of BBC Radio 1 DJ Huw Stephens and online portal Drowned In Sound for their first Single Distant Street Lights/Fractures: Possibly the most gripping piece of music you’ll hear this year (8/10) Single of the Week. With a sold out label showcase at London’s Roundhouse in 2007, the band accompanied Texan band This Will Destroy You on a string of sold out shows throughout 2008. Shows with Jeniferever, The Boxer Rebellion and 65daysofstatic ensued. Their debut album Paper Canyon, produced by Justin Lockey (Bloc Party, Yourcodenameis:milo) received a worldwide release in summer 2009. A perfectly presented first statement of their intentions…sending jolts from shoulders to fingertips (8/10) – Clash. The band then embarked on a headline UK and Ireland tour before bringing the year to a close accompanying Sweden’s pg.lost on a European tour.
Paper Canyon Recycled stemmed from an open call, giving fans and fellow artists the opportunity to submit a remix of CITC’s 2009 debut album release Paper Canyon. The band received over 100 track submissions. The skills of one particular entrant, Brighton-based producer and musician Guy Andrews (iambic), impressed the band so much that they have invited him to co-produce their following studio album at Brighton Electric.
