Over Atmosphere’s more than twenty-year career they have managed to continually tweak and strive to perfect their formula, while neither straying too far off their path, nor resorting to playing it safe. Starting at Overcast, the group’s first official album, and traveling through years of new albums, side projects and various collaborations, Atmosphere’s music has evolved in a way that differs from many of their peers and predecessors. As Atmosphere steps into their next year of making music, Slug & Ant show no signs of slowing, compromising or losing sight of their vision. Nor has time revealed any diminishing of those qualities that have brought them this far. Musically, Ant has continued to define Atmosphere’s sound, ranging from a healthy mixture of upbeat and fun, to the oft more iconic, moody and personal. As for the lyrics, Slug started his passion for rhyming with an obsessive-like penchant for the way words intersect, as well as how those words can be manipulated for unexpected and clever meanings. Their passion and creative spark are as illuminate as ever. Slug and Ant still have plenty of stories to tell.
