Release Show: April 27th, Kulak's Woodshed, North Hollywood, California -

The brevity of the album, condensed from several years’ work, actually renders it utterly enigmatic, like a lifetime reduced to a random clutch of snapshots. On Plays With Fire, however, Taormina’s songs are blistered but precious polaroids, glue barely holding them on to the pages of a family album. - Gold Flake Paint

A gorgeous tour de force. - Indie Shuffle

Cloud’s third album ‘Plays with Fire’ is a spiritual journey through intimate darkness, a poignant and beautiful experience of vulnerability and solitude. - Atwood Magazine

There are certain records which manage to replicate, musically, serotonin release. Then there are records that contextualise this physical rush within the throws of human experience: friendship, love, memory and the swathes of melancholy that embrace our lives like a sleep. (Plays with Fire) falls dreamily into the latter category. - London in Stereo

Keenly characteristic of the current season…begins with the picturesque opaqueness of its predecessor, but quickly blows over into a sunny spring morning, exposing a field’s worth of indie-pop blossoms that teem with vibrant colors and exuberant lifeforms. There’s not a cloud in sight. - The Alternative

A madcap romp through far-flung styles and psych-addled planes of existence. - The Line of Best Fit

Cloud has been, and always will be, a project about navigating conflicting, hefty emotions, and this process just can’t be done without the help of close friends. “Two Hands Bound” brings four friends into the fold as Taormina explores the burnout that can accompany overworking oneself, but it doesn’t sound labored-over at all; instead, it’s about as effortless as psychedelic music gets - POST-TRASH

Tyler Taormina & friends work their music machines of endless wonder… - IMPOSE Magazine

Blissful unease defines Cloud. On Plays with Fire, much of the lyrics are somehow simultaneously hopeful and pessimistic, with our narrator hanging out with friends while feeling antisocial or seeking love when he has none to give. - The 405

…by funneling this through the prism of lush-but-lo-fi pop, the melancholy is at once accentuated and transcended, the often soaring instrumentation lifting what would otherwise be morose thoughts and consuming worries into something almost otherworldly. - Various Small Flames
