Majical Cloudz is a Canadian indie pop duo based in Montreal,[1] consisting of singer-songwriter Devon Welsh and producer and live collaborator Matthew Otto.[2]

Welsh, the son of actor Kenneth Welsh,[2] began Majical Cloudz as a collaborative project in 2010, releasing a self-titled cassette[3] on Numbers Station, the EP Earth to a Friend/Mountain Eyes, and the full-length album II on Arbutus Records in 2011.[4] Otto joined as a collaborator in 2012, appearing for the first time on the 2012 EP Turns, Turns, Turns.[4]

Their second album, Impersonator, was released May 21, 2013 on Matador Records, and was a longlisted nominee for the 2013 Polaris Music Prize.[5] The band have played numerous shows across North America to support the album, including performances at Toronto's NXNE festival[6] and New York City's Northside Festival.[7]

Welsh has also collaborated with Grimes.[6]
