ACT NAME: Atlas Wynd
GENRE: Garage rock, Blues, Indie
HOME TOWN: Brighton
MUSICAL FAMILY TREE: Thee Oh Sees, Drenge, Queens Of The Stone Age
WHY CARE: This duo consisting of Peter Chapman (vocals, guitar) and Harry Sotnick (drums) have been rightfully causing a stir all over the country thanks to their intense live shows and infectious blues-tinged, fuzz-drenched garage rock anthems. What they lack in numbers they more than make up for with buckets of swagger, polished song writing, and the ability to jump between sparse nothingness and deafening walls of noise at the drop of the hat. You’ll be hearing plenty more scrappy riffs and huge choruses from these guys in the near future, make sure you see them live for the full effect.
KILLER TRACK: “Mona Lisa”
