Codes in the Clouds are an instrumental post-rock band that aurally encompassed everything from the melancholic and introspective to the triumphant and ethereal.
Formed in 2007, the group wrote and toured tirelessly and were one of the first signings on Erased Tapes Records. Made up of songwriters Ciaran Morahan, Stephen Peeling, Jack Major, Joe Power, and Pete Lambrou, the quintet opted to create instrumental music, stating "the listener can take what they want from it. There's no default reaction for people to have, no set paths for people's emotional response to run down." This no-limits approach to evoking emotion with layered and detailed soundscapes became apparent on their first single, "Distant Street Lights/Fractures," which received critical acclaim, most notably from BBC Radio One's Huw Stephens. The track was then featured as Single of the Week on webzine Drowned in Sound. After more relentless writing, recording, and touring, they delivered their debut release, Paper Canyon, in 2009. Fresh off the success of Paper Canyon's release, the ensemble put out Paper Canyon Recycled in 2010, which featured acts such as Nils Frahm, Rival Consoles & Worriedaboutsatan. The group swiftly followed this up with their well-received second studio release, As The Spirit Wanes, in 2011. Their highly anticipated third album is expected in late 2018.
