One of our favorite recent local discoveries has been Western Massachusetts' based Cloudbelly. The collaboration between Corey Laitman and Anand Nayak has this simply lovely mixture of folk and electro-pop in their songs, and their new single is my favorite of theirs yet. "Whistling" starts off with this gorgeous and simple folk melody. It's just guitar and Laitman's vocals, and you're guaranteed to be mesmerized. As the song includes more instrumentation and Nayak joins in on vocals, the sound gets more lush and compelling. It's a gentle song that sounds like the musical equivalent of sitting in a forest by a stream with only the sounds of nature around you. Cloudbelly are one of the most intriguing bands around right now.
You can watch the video for "Whistling" below. The song is available now as a single via Signature Sounds. For more on Cloudbelly, check out the artist's website.
