Dark Cloud was written after reading an article about the growing air pollution in the world. There are cities so filled with smog and emissions, that if you look down at it from above, all you see is a black cloud.
This got me thinking about everything living inside these clouds, and not long after Dark Cloud was made.
This is the first single from Byrkjedal’s upcoming debut Songs for a restless world, a protest song album with a modern twist and political message. Dark Cloud is a close, meditative and moving song that describes both the minor details and the big frames of the human situation. Siri Byrkjedal addresses the global, environmental challenge and takes it down to a human and relatable level, creating a sharp contrast between the beautiful and the brutal.
