WHITE CLOUD has been playing in the Bay Area for 3 years, from major venues and art shows, to warehouses, even an old AC Transit Bus outside of Ashby BART. Formed in the Fruitvale area of Oakland, with the intent to merge the various members musical interests, which range from Neu!, Aphex Twin, Syd Barrett, Faust, Love, Sonic Youth to name just a couple. With the first official EP coming out in the next following months (recorded at the historic Different Fur Studios, and by the band), it follows a loose concept of a schizophrenic time traveler. WHITE CLOUD consists of James Murphy (drums, vocals) Shiv Mehra (guitar,bass, vocals) Patrick Vacchio (bass, guitar, keys) and Nicolas Capello (vocals, guitar, bass, keys)

The duo have just put out their first cassette release Dissolve (2) which was self-recorded and then mastered by Greg Ashley (of Gris Gris). The six-song release is full of lengthy lo-fi psych tracks with whirling reverberated vocals over dark, grungy and hazy guitars and loops.
