Released last year, Whitney Ballen’s great You’re A Shooting Star, I’m A Sinking Ship is an album of push and pulls longing for both the comforts of the past and the boundless possibilities of the future. That dichotomy is sonically in play on single “Black Cloud” for which the artist is now sharing a music video. Pulling you in with a quiet rumble, the track explodes with squalls of sound and waves-crashing guitars.
