NORTH ATLAS Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday

Scotland On Sunday, 13 August 2017, North Atlas

Hailing from Dumfries, North Atlas are a Glasgow-based electro-rock quartet for fans of Biffy Clyro and Imagine Dragons.

Their excellent new single ’Another Ocean’ is released on 8 September via their own label, King of the Woods Recordings, and was produced by award-winning Dan Weller (Enter Shikari, Young Guns) at Chapel Studios in Lincolnshire.

Formed just last year, they’ve already supported high profile acts including Feeder and Reverend And The Makers as well as securing a slot at Tenement TV’s Tenement Trail. Through shear hard graft North Atlas even managed to sell out Manchester venue Night & Day Cafe.

They play live at Edinburgh’s Opium venue on Friday and officially launch their new single at Stereo in Glasgow on Saturday 7 October. For information and tickets see Listen to ’Another Ocean’ exclusively at
