Single: Neon Atlas - Velocity

Neon Atlas, 'Velocity'

Info: Cork band Neon Atlas have been justifiably been receiving rave reviews for their music over the last year from the likes of Hot Press and established music sites such as Golden Plec describing their sound as '...a batch of warm, fuzzy pop tunes with enough song-writing chops to keep even the most hard to please music listener interested.' 

New single 'Velocity' is a neat rocker with a prevalence for alt-rock tinged guitars and vocals à la Jimmy Eat World, as well as more geographically local nods to the likes of Scottish band Idlewild and Ireland's own Future Kings of Spain from days of yore. There is strong appeal in lead singer Kieran Ring's stylish vocals and the track is carried very nicely by some straight-forward yet gripping guitar hooks and effects, the band's sound is solidly tight and completed ably by the deliberate and prominent bass-lines and drum comping which sees Neon Atlas deliver a most satisfactory full package. 'Velocity' definitely affirms the band's place amongst our top acts at present in the genre.

They coincidentally play Christchurch Cathedral this afternoon at 4pm if you're in the Dublin 8 area or you can catch them in Whelan's on the 16th of July, the Galway Fringe Festival the following night and finally the Pine Lodge in Myrtleville, Cork on the 18th.
