Scattered Clouds is a dark, experimental, post apocalyptic rock group, from Hull, QC. Scattered Clouds is led by bassist, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Philippe Charbonneau (Hilotrons, Evening Hymns, Jim Bryson). Since Scattered Clouds' inception in 2010 and the release of a self-titled EP on Charbonneau’s and frequent collaborator Olivier Fairfield’s (FET.NAT, H. de Heutz, Last Ex) E-Tron Records (www.etronrecords.com), Scattered Clouds has evolved from a solo home studio project to a performance act that creates a trance-inducing, orchestral and intense cinematic experience. Blending harsh yet controlled sounds, brooding rhythms, slap-back baritone vocals, and unsettling analog synthesizer sounds with a strong sense of form and dynamics, Scattered Clouds’ music resonates somewhere between pop and the spirit of experimental noise. The First Empire is the group’s first full-length release and was released on E-Tron Records April 21, 2015. Scattered Clouds is a three-piece band consisting of Philippe Charbonneau (bass/vocals), drummer Jamie Kronick (Ben Caplan) and keyboardist Mike Dubue (HILOTRONS).
