North Atlas reveal video for ‘Volcanoes’!

Posted Wed, 06 Dec 2017


For fans of... Imagine Dragons, AWOLNATION, Cage The Elephant

"...moody electro rock with both

menacing industrial riffs and pop-

laden hooks..."
- Team Rock



"...ambitious stadium rock choruses with driving beats." - The Skinny


"...soaring, impassioned majesty..." - Gigslutz



Following on from the pulsating Another Ocean, North Atlas make an immediate return with their single, the energy-fuelled Volcanoes, out now via King Of The Woöds Recordings and available to buy on iTunes and stream on Spotify.

The video premiered on Fame Magazine and is now available to watch on North Atlas' YouTube channel.



Expertly producing a sound keenly associated with traditional stadium-ready rock bands and combining this with elements of shimmering, modern electronica, North Atlas have constructed an emotionally affecting sound that has seen the band gain support from the likes of Team Rock, Kerrang Radio, The Scotsman and BBC Radio Scotland.

The audio for the single premiered on The Skinny and you can also stream it on the band's Soundcloud page.



Working with producer and Sikth guitarist Dan Weller (Enter Shikari), Volcanoes sees North Atlas progress their sound even further: neatly blending technically gifted instrumentation with a thunderous beat and bold, anthemic vocals.

Tackling themes of self-reflection, the importance of understanding ones self and becoming a better human being, Volcanoes undulates throughout as looped samples glisten, effects-laden guitars swirl and Leon D Hunter’s (vocals) vocals soar.

Having played in a number of bands within the Glasgow music scene over the years, brothers Leon and Cam Hunter (drums / samples) decided to step away from the circuit and spend time mastering the art of electronic music production. Enlisting the help of like-minded musicians wasn’t easy but the brothers made contact with Drew Lesslie (guitar) and Kai Cairney (bass) who shared their vision for marrying a traditional rock sound with a modern electronic approach. This garnered immediate results as the foursome began to produce a number of sonically striking tracks in the studio, before embarking on their first live show together in 2016. North Atlas were officially born and ready to take on the world.

Volcanoes by North Atlas is out now via King Of The Woöds Recordings and available to buy on iTunes and stream on Spotify.

North Atlas release new single ‘Another Ocean’!

Posted Mon, 11 Sep 2017


For fans of... Imagine Dragons, Fall Out Boy, Awolnation

"...moody electro rock with both

menacing industrial riffs and pop-

laden hooks..."
- Team Rock



"...soaring, impassioned majesty..." - Gigslutz



Glasgow's alt-rock quartet North Atlas present their dynamic new single Another Ocean, out now via King Of The Woöds Recordings and is available to buy and stream on iTunes and Spotify.

The video for the single premiered on Gigslutz and is now available to watch on the North Atlas YouTube channel.



Another Ocean is a song about moving on and starting again. Written as the result of the end of a relationship, the lyrics reflect the feelings of self doubt, isolation and misery, accented by anthemic pop-rock melodies and soaring choral harmonies. Vocalist Leon D Hunter goes on to say; “the uncertainty of the future is an endless ocean in-front of you. This makes you feel like you're an imperfect person among a sea of people who from the outside seem to be doing well. You become a cast away, who arrives at a separate island to that of your former life.”

The audio for Another Ocean premiered on Team Rock and is now available to stream on the North Atlas Soundcloud page.



Brothers and founding members Leon (vocals) and Cam Hunter (drums / samples), had previously played together in a variety of bands within the Glasgow circuit, but decided to incorporate new members Drew Lesslie (guitar) and Kai Cairney (bass) when they wanted to develop a more prominent electronic sound. The band have now been together since 2016 and feel ready to embark on bigger and better things to come. Another Ocean was produced by Dan Wellar (Enter Shikari), helping North Atlas continue to create the authentic electronic-rock sound they’ve been honing and now feel ready to embark on bigger and better things to come.

Another Ocean by North Atlas is out now via King Of The Woöds Recordings and is available to buy and stream on iTunes and Spotify.
