Cloudmouth at The East Room

Cloudmouth at The East Room

On Saturday, July 15th, Nashville Offbeat went out to The East Room to see art-folk duo Cloudmouth.  Guitarist Kyle Numann and drummer Amoretta don't need more than their simple two-piece set up to captivate an audience and have them hanging on every word.  

Cloudmouth's set started with a droning guitar and drum groove that broke off into a looped riff.  Behind them, projections of trees and clouds shifted across the back of the stage, adding visual gravity to their music.  Jumping into their first song, "Drunk on What," the melancholic melodies and steady, driving drum patterns laid the foundation of their eclectic sound creation.  At times throughout the set, Amoretta used her breath as percussion, and added liveliness to songs by whistling into the mic.  Though many of their songs approached deeper subject matter, the poetic lyrics didn't go above their audiences heads. 

It's a rare occurrence for a local headliner to keep a majority of the audience in the venue until midnight (let alone to keep them dancing and moving), but Cloudmouth did just that!  You can find out more about this offbeat band by checking out their website and following them on Facebook to see when they're playing next.
