Flanked by horns, strings, percussion and live painters (yes, live painters) on stage, Cloud Cult is a band to remember. But what makes the Minneapolis-based collective really stand out is their knack for building a strong sense of community and love during shows. With an unwavering positive spirit and a freedom-focused philosophy baked within each note and lyric, they’re also well known for their eco-friendly and community-conscious ways. Their most recent and ninth album, Love, overflows with the genuinely heartfelt feelings that love brings, for better or worse.
