North Atlas – The Longest Shadow Attached to the Ankle

Scottish rockers North Atlas recently released their EP The Longest Shadow Attached to the Ankle!

Seer opens with great instrumentation before cutting into some rapidly delivered vocals as the instrumentation kicks back in for the chorus.

Fasterthanyourthoughts speaks about living with ADHD and I love how vocalist Leon lets his Scottish accent show through more than in the opening track. It has a good drum beat throughout and the closing riff is great.

Super Ego is really catchy and anthemic whilst Some Kind of Circle is hands down my favourite. It opens with some haunting vocals. It has a nice sound to it, with an edgy rocky feel.

I love how in closer The Long Stare, the prominent drums perfectly accentuate the vocals.

North Atlas are a great band who I really want to see live and after listening to this EP which has everything I could want in a record, I’m looking forward to it even more.
