Welsh, the son of actor Kenneth Welsh, began Majical Cloudz as a collaborative open project in Halifax 2010 with Matthew E. Duffy (who departed the project after the release of II), releasing a self-titled cassette on Numbers Station, the EP Earth to a Friend/Mountain Eyes, and the full-length album II on Arbutus Records in 2011. Otto, an electronic music creator with a penchant for abstract soundscapes and noise joined in 2012, appearing for the first time on the 2012 EP Turns, Turns, Turns. Otto is also an Electroacoustic Studies major.
Their second album, Impersonator, was released May 21, 2013 on Matador Records, and was a longlisted nominee for the 2013 Polaris Music Prize. Their live performance has been critically acclaimed as one of the project's most enigmatic elements, with the band touring extensively throughout North America and Europe to support the album, including performances at Toronto's NXNE festival and New York City's Northside Festival. Pitchfork Media ranked "Impersonator" as the number 8 best album of 2013.
The band's third album, Are You Alone? was released on October 16, 2015 to critical acclaim, and most recently released an EP called "Wait And See" in January 2016. In 2016 Are You Alone? was nominated for a Juno Award. 
On Friday, March 4, 2016 the duo announced on their tumblr page that they were going their separate ways and that "Are You Alone?" will be their last full release.
