The second full-length release by The Pink Cloud and Midnight Sky finds Dana Ashley in a new city with a new supporting cast. The two years spent on Claire show as it sounds much more realized and mature than Vanish, though still present are the playful screeching and nonsensical lyrical diversions she makes work so well.

“Although it was lonely and a bit of a struggle when I first moved to Chicago, I feel I’ve really grown through making this album. The new band has been really supportive and Robert (from A Lonely Bird) would stop by occasionally to see how things were going and help out. One day during recording, Rob brought along Jonathan which was kinda awkward at first, but we soon hit it off. He helped give the second half of the album some direction and I asked him to contribute some vocals to it. That was when we came up with the joint tour and EP idea. ”
