My first solo album "Atlantis" is out now. Give it a try! More info below the cover!

Bandcamp link:

https://andrasatlason.bandcamp.com/album/atlantis


Andras Atlasonís 2022 record ďAtlantisĒ is a 12-track release inviting music, lithography and literature into an inter-civilizational dialogue between the Nordic and the Portuguese-speaking worlds. Half of the songs are based upon Nordic-language poems and half are based upon Portuguese-language poems, reflecting Atlasonís own split identity between his Faroese father and his Brazilian mother Ė both classical violinists.

On the threshold between art rock and folk music with a touch of jazz and progressive metal, the record moves in seconds from blast beats with oboes and clarinets to soft jazz piano, featuring also Greek bouzoukis, many violins, Hammond organs and synths Ė all accompanied by Atlasonís dramatic baritone voice.

Precisely this difficulty to define the recordís genre in text is the perfect invitation to the universe of its unique musical gimmick combined with the imagery of Faroese lithograph Marius Olsen, who signs the strikingly heavy front cover for the album and 12 other beautiful illustrations.

Thanks a lot, Manuel! 100% self-financed work, most of it recorded and mixed in my bedroom. Looking forward to your comments!

Really well-done, Andras, thank you for sharing your work with us. Your voice has that undeniable stentorian Scott Walker/David Sylvian touch that's rare to see in prog!

Thanks a lot for the feedback, Gordy!

Scott Walker is surely among my greatest inspirations.

I've also applied to be included as an artist in PA, help me out on that thread if any of you can!

I'd love to get this album reviewed here at some point. Cheers!
