Launder is the post-punk/shoegaze project of singer-guitarist John Cudlip, a Dana Point native who, after moving to Los Angeles, was introduced to Jackson Phillips of Day Wave. Not long after, the pair began work on Launder’s debut EP, “Pink Cloud,” out March 9. Working out of Phillips’ home studio in Echo Park, the EP took shape with the help of French singer-songwriter Soko, who lends her vocals to four of the five tracks, and guitarist Zachary Cole Smith of DIIV, who takes the lead on two. The debut single is the dreamy “Fade,” whose beautifully detuned melancholy suggests Cudlip is not fading at all, but just getting started. -Kevin Bronson
