Watch Cloud Nothings ‘Fall In’ at Dr. Martens’ SXSW 2015 Showcase
Frontman Dylan Baldi also gives an exclusive interview on what matters to him most in music
It’s natural to love a musician for his or her art, but it’s equally nice — if not better — to find out that they’re a decent person, too. That’s what Cloud Nothings frontman Dylan Baldi talks about in an exclusive #STANDFORSOMETHING interview with Dr. Martens at their South By Southwest 2015 showcase, at which the post-hardcore band performed. “Occasionally we’ll play with, like, a really famous band or something, and sometimes they’re horrible people,” he explained.
Baldi continues, explaining that talent does not equate to egotism: “I don’t ever want to end up like that. I guess that’s a life lesson: It’s nice to be nice.” Watch Baldi talk values and see Cloud Nothings perform “Fall In” — from their 2012 LP, Attack on Memory — at SXSW above.
