Cloud Boat - 'Bastion'

R & S records newest member, Cloud Boat, released their debut single, Lions On The Beach, today. I haven been on this single for quite sometime now streaming it over and over again through the label's soundcloud. There's something just so incredible about the b-side of this release that makes it an instant classic. 'Bastion' plays part in a melodramatic number that slowly lures the listener into this bass and sub haven of emotive guitar strings and heavy reverbs of vocals. Such a beautiful and glorious composition. Can't wait to hear more stuff from this duo. In the meantime purchase the single over here.
