TUNE Poisonous Birds - Cloud Level
Cloud Level opens with a mesmerising drone layered with swelling Wurlitzer piano [0:10] and after some surprising flourishes of syncopated guitars & drums [2:04], crumbles into the crushing electronic chaos [3:18] that fans are beginning to expect from Poisonous Birds.
At face value, the song explores the feeling of flying above the Cloud Level and drifting into a freezing climate, but later hints at deeper, darker meaning, closing with the lyrics "Brightness and dark, grotesque and art, the Devil & God, metres apart".
"Cloud Level sets the scene for the rest of the record and is our statement of intent. I'd love for it to be the first piece that people hear from us."
