Majical Cloudz's Devon Welsh releases surprise solo project

11 May 2016, 17:18 | Written by Laurence Day

Devon Welsh, frontman of the now-defunct Majical Cloudz, has released a brand new collection of songs called Down The Mountain.

It's not technically an album, apparently, but rather an anthology of unreleased solo material.

In a post on his website, Welsh elaborates:

"This is a small collection of songs that were written at different times over the last two years. Some of them were written during the same time as Are You Alone? but did not end up on that album for one reason or another. Others were written and recorded for fun last summer.
I want to release all these songs because I like them a lot and since I am working on new music, my attention will inevitably go to that new music and these songs will be forgotten, and forgotten songs are sad.

"So this isn't an album, and it isn't an album of 'new music', but it's a collection of older songs that I like and that I feel deserve to be released.

"Note: The recordings might sound a bit rough, I mixed and mastered it myself and am in the process of learning how to be better at that..."

Majical Cloudz disbanded earlier this year; final LP Are You Alone? arrived late last year, while final EP Wait & See dropped in January.

Stream the LP below. It's available via Pay What You Want.
