SLOW TRAVEL BERLIN
Majical Cloudz, Kantine am Berghain, 9pm
One look at the name and those unfamiliar with the music Majical Cloudz makes might easily mistake the group for something from the mind of a prepubescent, or at least someone with an inclination toward textese.
In actuality, Majical Cloudz is actually comprised of Canadians Devon Walsh and Matthew Otto, and if anything, the lighthearted name of this experimental duo is merely a juxtaposition to the contemplative dream pop it produces.
The group released its sophomore album, Impersonator, earlier this year, and are celebrating with a 14-date tour of Europe. Start your weekend off on the right foot with these two as they bring their dramatic, atmospheric performance to Berghain’s Kantine, and allow yourself to be swept away in the synthpop sound.
