Cloud Nothings' prolific lo-fi pop is the brainchild of Dylan Baldi, a Cleveland, Ohio native who was still in his teens when the buzz about his music started. Baldi was majoring in audio recording at college when he dropped out to focus on the music he was making at home. After a few months, he uploaded the songs 'Hey Cool Kid' and 'Whaddaya Wanna Know' to his MySpace page, which led to gigs with Woodsand Real Estate, and 2010 singles released via Group Tightener and Old Flame Records. That year, Cloud Nothingsalso released a split cassette with Campfires and the Turning On EP. On the strength of all this music, Baldi signed to Carpark in the US and to Wichita Records in the UK; Turning On was reissued with selected tracks from his other singles.
