NORTH AMERICAN HEADLINE TOUR STARTS MONDAY, JANUARY 29 IN LOS ANGELES
COMPOSE ORIGINAL SCORE FOR BALLET ÁTHA CLIATH
TORONTO, ON – January 23, 2018 - Dublin four-piece Cloud Castle Lake have premiered the new video for their rousing single ”Twins”. Described by Stereogum, who premiered the video , as “heavy-hearted euphoria,” “Twins” is perfectly complimented by the atmospheric and beautifully shot video, directed by Irish filmmaker Kenny Leigh in collaboration with the band.
“Nearly all of it was shot outdoors at Russborough House just as a hurricane was approaching, so towards the end of the day the weather got pretty hairy,” explains the band’s Brendan Jenkinson on the making of the video. “It was very unpleasant at the time but ended up working really well with the arc of the video. We wanted to capture the same mood and feel of dream sequences in 50s/60s European films. We found that, in a kind of counter-intuitive way, it really suited the music and gave a new dimension to the lyrics.”
On Monday, January 29th, Cloud Castle Lake will be making their way to North America for a 5-city tour, starting in Los Angeles at the Hotel Cafe. The band will make stops in San Francisco, Chicago and Boston before finishing with a show in New York City on February 6th.

Having burst onto the scenes back in 2014 with their self-released debut Dandelion EP, the young band has since been championed by critics across the globe. Pitchfork welcomed them for being an “extremely rare case where a band incorporates not just the vocals and the rhythmic vibrancy, but also the pioneering spirit.” Stereogum hailed them as “one of the best” to come out of CMJ Music Festival in 2015 and NME called it when they appointed them as the “future trail-blazers” that they are.
Now, equipped with an independent record label called Bright Antenna behind them and an exhilarating body of work up their sleeves Cloud Castle Lake has confirmed their debut LP (produced by Rob Kirwan) will be released in Spring 2018.
Equal parts pastoral folk and soaring post-rock crescendo, Cloud Castle Lake comrpises of Daniel McAuley, Brendan William Jenkinson, Rory O’Connor and and Brendan Doherty and often features additional collaborative musicians. Hailing from Dublin, the band has supported touring acts such as Glasser, Lisa Hannigan and Nigel Godrich’s Ultraísta.
