“Cloud Nein,” the first offering from Dream Hunting in the Valley of the In-Between, is earning praise for its ebullient, melancholic pop. Consequence of Sound says the track “is the perfect Man Man comeback song. It’s got everything we’ve been missing in the band’s absence: simple horn slides, parade-like percussion, fantastical vocal harmonies, and an undeniably catchy chorus. It also marks the return of frontman Honus Honus’ life lessons veiled under theatrical delivery.” Brooklyn Vegan called the lyric video “joyous” and noted the track for its “70s style pop.” And Rolling Stone offered this, “despite the characteristic negativity of the song, the music belies its darker side, finding Kattner wailing on the chipper-sounding chorus.”
Dream Hunting in the Valley of the In-Between is now available for preorder from Sub Pop.
