Click to read the reviewThe PianoA mute female pianist, travelling with her young daughter from Scotland to an arranged marriage in New Zealand in the mid-19th Century, is indifferent towards her new husband but when she is seduced by the overseer there are devastating consequences in the compelling period drama The Piano.

With a haunting score, beautifully filmed and dramatised, The Piano is a poignant and compelling period story of a mute woman who refuses to be ignored.

Click to read the reviewThey Who DareBased on the true story of Operation Anglo, the planned special forces destruction of two German airfields on Rhodes in order to protect Allied troops in Egypt from the threat of bombing by the Luftwaffe.

A credible cast led by old hands Dirk Bogarde and Denholm Elliott add to the attraction of this ultimately tense, enjoyable film that is based on an important historic event of World War Two.

Blackout!
Described as "jerky, rattling, nu wave-influenced, indie pop stomp with a vocal that has enraptured The Cloud Room's live audiences over and over again", Blackout! is destined for the 'favourites' slot in our driving playlist and is the perfect follow-up to the hugely successful, limited-edition Hey Now Now.

The lyrical content, in the words of the publicity machine, "sounds like a fairytale Apocalypse on acid (...we were making wishes on some missiles we mistook for shooting stars...). The track showcases J's voice in all of its self-consciously Bryan Ferry crossed with David Bowie mutant glory.
