Aidan Maizels released their latest artfully indulgent single “Nuages Cœur” on September 20th, sharing with the airwaves a unique smorgasbord of sounds which pull together in sonically lucid concordance.
The single may kick off with some slightly ominous synth keys, yet, the progressions of the single reveal plenty of elements of psychedelic ambience – that’s when the melody behind Nuages Cœur truly grips you. There’s an incredible amount of catharsis to be found in Nuages Cœur, and it’s safe to say that it should be plenty of appeal to any fans of bands such as Slowdive, My Bloody Valentine, and Ride.
Considering that I’m fairly aurally jaded and Nuages Cœur still managed to give me chills, that’s a fairly undeniable testament to Aidan Maizels ability as a songwriter, vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist.
If the alchemic contortions of sound don’t leave you enamoured, the fact that the Melbourne-based artist wrote it about falling in love with a cloud definitely should do it.
You can stream and download Nuages Cœur by heading over to Bandcamp now.
