ABOUT CLOUDY JUNE
For 3 years she was the lead singer of a Death Metal band. Now Cloudy June is going solo, reaching fans all across the globe with her new music.
Titled “one of Berlin’s promising emerging songwriters“ in early 2019, the young self-made musician counts over 1.2 Million streams on Spotify today. Though her first demos, which she released on SoundCloud at the tender age of 14, were only meant for her friends.
Cloudy wrote her first songs in elementary school. At 16, she became part of the band New Greed, with whom she played her first gigs and — inspired by bands like Arch Enemy — she began to learn the art of metal-screaming. Shortly before she quit, Cloudy released an EP with her band.
To focus on her solo career, the young artist left the band after 3 years and recorded her first solo EP with her best friend at the end of 2018.
But Cloudy's music underwent another complete change.
From a few hundred to over 80,000 monthly listeners on Spotify in a year – Cloudy is rapidly gaining new fans around the world.
With a new look, a new team and a new sound Cloudy June released her kick-off single of 2020 in April – 'High Waist to Hell' – and made it into the Top 30 of the Hype Machine Charts and Top 5 on SubmitHub.
Spotify also discovered the half-Cuban artist and secured her a place in the coveted Fresh Finds: Pop Editorial Playlist with 'High Waist to Hell'.
The young artists biggest success so far is her single 'Pretty Pills for Broken Hearts’ (1 million+ Spotify Streams).
The track owes its success mainly to Cloudy's clips on TikTok. The sound to 'Pretty Pills for Broken Hearts' now has over 850,000 video views on the app. At the same time, the Berlin musician remains true to her metal roots: with her mix of commercial pop elements and rock, Cloudy's latest single 'Love the Way It Hurts' has been featured in three Spotify playlists: Punk Unleashed, Pop Punk's Not Dead & New Punk Tracks.
On TikTok and Instagram Reels, the young artist continues to build an ever-growing fanbase. Together, her own videos have over 4 million views.
Definitely one of the up-and-coming artists to watch in 2021.
