Vancouver based folk rockers The Wicks almost slipped under our radar with this new record. Clouds is a lush impassioned collection of songs for kicking the dirt off your boots. Stitched with twinkling ivories and elaborated by vocalist Matt Mclean’s handsome moan, ‘Vacation’ comes down the pipe like a strong gulp of medicine. ‘In The New Sea’ is reminiscent of Connor Oberst’s country inerpretations. This album was brought to us by the always enjoyable Paperbird Records. Enjoy with sunrise/sunset.
