Grimes collaborators Majical Cloudz sign to Matador, share live performance of 'Turns, Turns, Turns'

The Montreal weird-pop act also shared a live performance of ‘Turns, Turns, Turns.’

Majical Cloudz, the collaboration between songwriter Devon Welsh and producer Matthew Otto, pairs dense, atmospheric synth work with Welsh’s soulful baritone. Following last year’s Turns Turns Turns EP on Montreal-based Arbutus Records, the project will move to indie stronghold Matador Records, with a new full-length due out this Spring.

In addition, Majical Cloudz will tour North America with likeminded pop experimenter Autre Ne Veut before heading to Austin’s SXSW next month. The dates are below, along with video of a live performance of the haunting ‘Turns, Turns, Turns’, a song that was recently given a rich techno rework by fellow Canadians Blue Hawaii.
