Color of Clouds reunites three members of electronic rock outfit Moonraker, with subtle yet spectacular results. The three have kept in close touch over the last few years, but it was only recently that Kelli Scarr and Dan Chen began collaborating, at first just getting one another to play on each others' tunes, and soon after, writing songs together. Nate Greenberg, having worked closely with both of them, was an obvious choice as a third member - he lends his finely tuned production and programming skills to the project. The resulting sound is a mixture of indie-folk/pop, tinged with electronics, which has been described as 'what it would sound like if Feist were to sing with the Flaming Lips'. Simple electronics accent the flowing, yet restrained instrumental parts, providing the perfect background to Scarr's sultry vocals. Chen sings as well on several songs, and the subtle blend of their two voices sometimes sound as if only one vocalist were in the room.
