about

Scattered Clouds Hull, Québec

Scattered Clouds' sound is dark, experiential and post apocalyptic. It layers artificial enstasy with bouts of unsteady euphoria and romanticism. Brooding rhythms and precise noise from this experimental 3-piece underline film noir imagery and auto-fictional narratives. ... more

Track Name: Fallen
Crummy, market preachers
Soon to be stone deaf dreamers
Foreshadowed voices, whisper
We spiral to infinity, when they're...

Fallen, fallen, fallen, fallen, fallen

Stone deaf faces, you're courageous in your ways
Sometimes outrageous when the unborn slaves say
Foreshadowed voices, whisper
We rival our deepest ennemies when they're...

Fallen, fallen, fallen, fallen, fallen
Fallen, fallen, fallen, fallen, fallen...
Track Name: Enchanteresse
There's something in the way
She moves herself
There's something in the way
She stings your mind in your everyday

Wake up and move your magic spell onto the people 'round us

There's something in the way
She stings your mind in your everyday

Release this tension of mine
Bring me to this world you know so well inside
Fear's our worst enemy
You've got none
There's only us to dawn upon

Wake up and move your magic spell onto the people 'round us

There's something in the way
She moves herself in your everyday
Track Name: People Walk
It was a Sunday
In the rain, and you were there
It was a Monday
At the grave, when you were where?

People walk, people talk
People see what they want to see
People walk, people talk
People see what they want to see

It was a summer day
When the king thought he could have his way, but you weren't prepared
He chose to see you
He chose to breath down onto you, but you weren't there
His heart was somewhere
Someplace you'd be glad to be, but you'll never know

People walk, people talk
People see what they want to see
People walk, people talk
People see what they want to see
Track Name: Deepest Night
In the deepest night, she walks to you
She talks in a way, that is true to you

She's a fool for your super power
A fool at a strangest hour
She's a fool for your super power
A fool at a strangest hour

In the shimmer of the crown, she bent you down
She spent you up, in a forgotten part of town

She's a fool for your super power
A fool at a strangest hour
She's a fool for your super power
A fool at a strangest hour
Track Name: The First Empire
What's the story?
You've been so sorry for
What's this glory?
You've been so granted for

I told you you should of told us so...

We sent out
A package to your doorway
But you've proven
You're not worth this fine pointed form

I told you you should of told us so...

The first empire's best
When the last one's caught fire
The first empire's best
When the last one's caught fire
