Gothic Rock Duo A Cloud of Ravens Unveil Video for “When It Comes”

Here lie those dreaded faults to behold,

of true and of not embedded in our tale unbegot

Stones hold their energy and some stars speak in code

Forgetting that their words travel slow

Brooklyn’s gothic “Children of the 70s and 80s,” A Cloud of Ravens, have flocked together to create a new sonic murmuration for you: When It Comes, from their forthcoming album Another Kind of Midnight (Cleopatra Records).

Ardent proponents of underground culture, this pair of dark poets weave together arcane tales of love, loss, faith, life, and The Great Unknown, riveting through their dark, gritty sonic scheme. Their sound, though inspired by bands of their youth, is not rooted stubbornly in the past – their music feels of this time, with their messages transversing the cosmos.

When It Comes is accompanied by a fascinating journey throughout Brooklyn, a bizarre BW negative odyssey through cemeteries, under the concrete jungles and snaking subway lines, past open bonfires on the streets. It is a lawless time in the city, and the video, directed by Kevin Condon, is a lovely, chaotic neutral snapshot.

Watch the video for “When It Comes” below:

Another Kind of Midnight will be available through all digital and streaming platforms. The single release of When it Comes marks A Cloud of Ravens‘ official debut on Cleopatra Records. This is a promising follow-up to the band’s first full-length album, 2019’s In the Wicked Hours.

Another Kind of Midnight is out on March 16th.
