Clouds of Scattered Noise is Headphone's debut album. It is the culmination of years of writing and recording. Many of the songs have had several incarnations which were repeatedly scrapped and improved upon. This album is the available to the listener and is exactly how the band wanted each track to sound. Please enjoy.
Headphone was started by Morgan McRae and Philip Cullin, and was developed over 4 years in San Diego. Several musicians had different roles in the first couple years as the group honed its sound, writing, and recording style. The group solidified as a three piece when Darren Goldberg joined the group on bass.
The music itself blends their interests in everything from classical / jazz to electronic dance and indie rock. The lyrics look at the enigmatic space between connection and detachment, hopefulness and despair. Make sure to catch their intense live performance if you can. Headphone is fueled by sonic contrast, subtle moods and explosive dynamics.
