HEAVY METAL and POP - Berlin Ex-Metal-Singer Cloudy June brings dark pop to Germany
21-year-old Cloudy June from Berlin is about to take off as a solo artist with her dark pop sound. After 3 years as the singer of a death metal band, she is now on hey way solo and proves on her new single "High Waist To Hell" that she has left surprisingly little of her past behind.
With an aesthetic that stands so much for Generation Z, which no longer knows any genre boundaries and for whom it is no problem to like Tyler The Creator and Lana Del Ray at the same time, Cloudy June releases the spring hit of 2020 Modern pop and still a homage to AC/DC. Because no matter if Indie-Rock, Mainstream-Pop, Soul or Death Metal, in Cloudy's opinion everything can be combined with each other and becomes it’s very own unique sound.
Titled "one of Berlin's promising emerging songwriters" in 2018, the young self-made independent musician now has over 42,000 streams on Spotify. Even trough her first demos, which she released on SoundCloud at the tender age of 14, were at first only meant for her friends. At that time people already became aware of her unusually rough and mature sounding voice, which is her distinctive feature to this day.
In early 2020 Cloudy June went on tour in Germany as part of the backing ensemble of celebrated indie musician KAT FRANKIE. From metal pubs and renowned punk clubs like the SO36, to the big hall of the famous Elbphilharmonie - the half-Cuban singer, who was praised by Radio Stations as a "hopeful young voice", has already played herself into the hearts of an ever growing fan community.
Definitely one of the female "artists to watch 2020".
Heavy Metal and Pop music: 21-year-old Cloudy June from Berlin is about to take off as a solo artist with her dark pop sound
After 3 years as the singer of a death metal band, she is now on hey way solo and proves on her new single "High Waist To Hell" that she has left surprisingly little of her past behind.
The young self-made independent musician uploaded her first demos to SoundCloud when she was just 14 years old. Already at that time people become aware of her unusually rough and mature sounding voice, which is still her unmistakable feature today.
Growing up in the middle of Berlin, Cloudy tells her story as part of a youth that doesn't know where to belong. Love is renounced, intoxication is an early companion and a dark melancholy hovers over everything. But Cloudy herself has every reason to celebrate. Her first EP ,,Heartless’’ was released in December 2018 and in total the young DIY musician has reached over 30,000 streams on Spotify in a few months.
In 2019 Cloudy June released her single ,,Somewhere in Between Us’’ together with a music video to shine a light on mental health and abuse.
