North Downs are a band that were born in a run down barn in the wintery English countryside. They are the lovechild of a Delta-Blues man and a London raver who have worked hard to marry the sounds of the organic and the synthetic. Their sound truly is genre-bending, fixating you on the journey their songs take you on.
‘Plastic Clouds’ has a certain sense of urgency and freshness to it that reflects their writing and recording process; the band gave themselves only one day to write, produce and mix it, meaning that clarity and swift decision-making was required and that’s evident in their debut single. It’s powerful, it’s fresh and it’s all-consuming. An all-round fantastic song and I can’t wait to hear more from them!
