Cloudbelly - "Up In Smoke" and "Soft As The Mouths"

We first discovered Cloudbelly at the Green River Festival. Their unique take on modern folk works perfectly for us. Cloudbelly are a collaboration between two western Massachusetts based artists, Corey Laitman and Anand Nayak, and have released a pair of singles to celebrate their recent signing to Signature Sounds. "Up In Smoke" is this gorgeous folk song that comes so close to being modern mainstream Americana but takes a glorious turn towards the unique in the interplay between the duo's vocals that keeps it interesting. Even though it's early November, it makes us love a chorus of "All that snow falling on the river." "Soft As The Mouths" goes in an unexpected direction after hearing "Up In Smoke." The second single is still folk, but goes in a jazzy direction that edges into pop territory every so often. The pair of singles show Cloudbelly's range within their genre, and has us even more excited to see where they go next!

You can listen to "Up In Smoke" below. Both singles are available now via Signature Sounds, and can be downloaded over at Bandcamp. For more on Cloudbelly, check out the artist's website.
