North Atlas are a Scottish electronic rock band, based in Glasgow. Formed in late 2015 the group comprises of the two Hunter brothers, with Scandinavian roots, and two members from central Scotland with a background in heavy rock.
After releasing the bands first single ‘Hal’ with a tongue-in-cheek video filmed across Scotland/England/Finland/Japan & America, the band have begun to gain momentum and the beginnings of a strong following.
Having been featured by prominent XFM new music DJ Jim Gellatly, performing a well received headline show at beloved Glasgow venue Stereo and another forthcoming headline show in March at Sound Control in Manchester on March 17th the group’s fan-base is growing steadily.
With a ‘no backing tracks’ policy and innovative use of electronic sounds played on drum pads and triggered by the bass guitar, alongside the use of the conventional rock band set up (Drum kit, Guitars etc.) the band have a distinct sound; not a crossover genre, but an amalgamation of Electronics and Rock.
