Refusing to be pigeonholed or narrowed down to one specific genre, their eclectic sound encompasses a wide variety of influences and genres from Garage Rock, late 70’s Post-Punk and melodic 80’s Indie. Atom Band strive to break through the South African art rock scene with a unique voice in serious, layered and intellectual song writing. Their unusual, dense, innovative and uniquely atmospheric material also draws influence from literature, film, art, anarchy as well as social, political and economic injustice. Atom Band consists of members from different ethnicities and backgrounds, each contributing to a unique overall sound.
