North Atlantic Oscillation
This month’s featured artist is North Atlantic Oscillation, a post-progressive trio from Edinburgh, Scotland. They are comprised of Sam Healy (vocals, guitars, keyboards), Ben Martin (drums, programming) and Chris Howard (bass, bass synth, backing vocals). Their music has been described as a modern take on progressive and psychedelic rock, with heavy drums and loud guitars mixed with dreamy synths and irregular electronic sound effects. Fans of Porcupine Tree’s lighter progressive albums Stupid Dream and Lightbulb Sun will most likely find a lot to like about North Atlantic Oscillation.
The band released their debut album Grappling Hooks in 2010, which received massive critical acclaim including being named as Zane Lowe’s Album of the Week on his BBC Radio 1 show. The band are back this year with Fog Electric, their brand new album. It’s due to be released on April 30th on Kscope, and you can hear a montage of the record as well a brand new song ‘Savage With Barometer’ below. The band also are playing a gig in London to celebrate the release of the album, alongside Kscope label mate Mothlite.
