In their own distinct ways, “Sync” and “A Wolf Howling” found the Dublin trio conjuring up art-rock euphoria similar to that of Radiohead and Sigur Rós.

The first song we heard from Cloud Castle Lake’s upcoming Dandelion EP, “Sync,” reminded me of Sigur Rós at their most celebratory. “A Wolf Howling,” the second Dandelion song the Dublin band are sharing, exists in the same wheelhouse, but the way it casts Daniel McAuley’s falsetto against a churning minor-key groove is closer to [...]
Cloud Castle Lake’s “Sync” begins on that ethereal plane inhabited by the likes of Radiohead and Sigur Rós, with celestial falsetto arching against shapeless moody tones.

by Jia Tolentino Little bit of Sigur Ros magic in this track: Swedish lyrics over a slow, sure beat; alternating hopeful and melancholy waves that crest at 2:50 into a refrain that sounds like "a detailed heart" but is definitely not.
