The Cloud Room

Take "The Cloud Room Challenge". If you listen to The Cloud Room's "Hey Now Now" and don't find yourself humming it in your head the next day, you can punch me in the throat.

I'm not expecting too many throat punches. It's a damn catchy tune. Good summer listening.

The Cloud Room is a Brooklyn-based band named after an executive's club on the top of the Chrysler Building. They are definitely another cog in the NYC retro-80's scene but I like their self-titled debut album a lot more than Bloc Party and The Bravery.

Can I punch you in the throat for making me sing 'hey now now' the next day? Actually I enjoyed it and it lead me to want to dig out my old Echo & the Bunnymen Vinyl 'songs to listen and sing to'. In particular it reminded me of 'bring on the dancing horses'.

I guess were only a few years away from the retro grunge movement.
