Montreal’s Black Atlass is a voice you can’t forget, charting new territory somewhere in-between modern R&B, experimental electronic production, and classic singer/songwriter confessionals. It pulses all throughout the new Young Bloods EP, six tracks that more than live up to their title with knotty chords, unexpectedly muscular beats, and the ethereal vocals that tie it all together. From “Blossom’s” handclap funk and the D’Angelo worthy boom bap of “Free Angel” to the primal howl of distorted closer “Jewels,” Young Bloods is the latest chapter in the story of a raw and electrifying new talent. Get it now on iTunes and everywhere else fine digital music is sold.
Today Black Atlass announced his great new Young Bloods EP with an exclusive Billboard interview and stream of lead track “Blossom,” which you can get now on iTunes (as well as pre-order the entire EP).
Black Atlass heads overseas this week for shows with Woodkid, check all the dates on the tour flyer and set the mood with BA’s Fool’s Gold single Paris, available now. Stay tuned for more from this one-of-a-kind voice very soon…
