Who: You can keep your Mercury’s, one of our favourite albums of the year belongs to Australia’s Cloud Control (so, yeah, they wouldn’t be eligible anyway). And, while the sun’s out, we suggest you go check it out. Bliss Release does exactly what it says on that virtual download – it’s summery, shimmery and shot through with that clever retro-glo pop that these Oz types do so bloody well. A hit at Sound City, and back for more courtesy of Revo and Wingwalker. We say this is a must see, if you’re after an Indian Summer of melodic pop, down under style. Can you imagine the Kings of Leon chillin’ with Cut Copy? No, we couldn’t, until we heard these guys…
