They burned them and screamed, “Come down with us, come down with us…”

Here’s the beautiful new single from London’s Cloud Boat, taken from the duo’s forthcoming LP, Book of Hours. “Youthern” is an understated, intensely somber lament that takes on an undeniable cinematic quality, thanks in part to those majestic, spacious “Ennio Morricone-esque” guitars and that absolutely devastating refrain. Book Of Hours is out May 27 on R & S / Apollo; pre-order a signed copy here.
