Watch Cloud Control Perform Stripped-Back Take on Dramatic 'Zone (This Is How It Feels)'


Sydney's Cloud Control recently swung by the Rolling Stone office to perform a deconstructed, acoustic-led reinvention of the epic 'Zone (This Is How It Feels)', the title track from their recently-released third album.

Zone finds the now-trio taking their sound in a bold new direction, with guitarist/vocalist Alister Wright recently telling Rolling Stone they wanted "the best of both worlds: the chaotic [live] stuff mixed with some really interesting sounds." As James Jennings notes in his review of Zone, the band have created "a new space situated between triumph and tragedy that sees them still keeping one eye on the horizon, questing for something greater."

Later this month, Cloud Control embark on national tour in support of Zone, starting with a hometown show at The Metro on Friday, September 22nd. Full run of dates below.

Cloud Control 'Zone' Tour
Friday, September 22nd: The Metro: Sydney
Saturday, September 23rd: The Triffid, Brisbane
Thursday, September 28th: The Croxton, Melbourne
Friday, September 29th: The Gov, Adelaide
Sunday, October 1st: Badlands, Perth
