As a follow up to their first song ever released, “Nomu”, which appeared on two Spotify-curated playlists and made its way to the top of Reddit’s ‘Listen To This’ subreddit, indie pop band GOOD KID has released a brand new single titled “Atlas”. The track was produced by Crispin Day (July Talk) at Taurus studios and mastered by Jon Drew who has worked with bands like Tokyo Police Club, Arkells, and Alexisonfire. Gauging by the amount of attention the band received from “Nomu” and listening to the brand new single, it is evident “Atlas” is going to continue to push the band’s popularity upwards.
“Atlas” features the smooth vocals the band debuted on their first track while continuing to showcase their innovative and infectiously catchy songwriting skills. Whether intentional or not, it is clear that GOOD KID recognizes the importance of hooking listeners in very early into the track. Within 10 seconds, the melody played throughout “Atlas” will become memorable and listeners will begin to listen to a story.
Vocalist Nick Frosst describes the song as being about looking for a moral structure and backbone in the world. This becomes more apparent as the song progresses and Frosst sings about dialogue between two characters. “Atlas” was inspired by the fictional novel, Worm, written by Wildbow.
The release of the new single will tide fans over for awhile; however, those anxious to hear more songs from the band will have the opportunity to see the band perform live in their hometown, Toronto, over the next few months.
