All growing up in the Blue Mountains, the four future members of Cloud Control met at the rehearsals for the Pirates of the Penzance, where a series of random events led them to the green room. They started talking to each other and decided to enter their first “Battle of the Bands”. The band subsequently won, and continued on to record and release their debut self-titled EP in 2008. The single from Cloud Control, “Death Cloud,” was picked up by Australian youth radio station Triple J and received strong airplay. The band were also selected[by whom?] to open for Supergrass on their tour of Australia.
After a string of festival appearances and tours with a variety of Australian bands, the band finally released their debut album, Bliss Release, in 2010.
