Despite what we may have heard with "No Future No Past
," Cloud Nothings
show that they can still kick out some fuzzed-out pop gems with the latest single off of the much anticipated Attack On Memory
, "Stay Useless." The track is a return to form for the Cleveland based band, but cherish it while you can. According to front man Dylan Baldi, this may be the last Cloud Nothings song of this kind.
In a statement to Rolling Stone
, Baldi said "'Stay Nothing' was my attempt at making a catchy pop song that was better than any other pop song I've written. I'm trying to take Cloud Nothings to different areas, songwriting-wise, so I figured I should try and finish off the 'poppy' songs with a bang." He was definitely right about that 'with a bang' part. "Stay Useless" is as instantly catchy as they come. The song bursts at the seams with it's pop-punk sensibilities and irresistible power chords. Download "Stay Useless" below.
