Born and bred in New York City, Hollis Brown embarked on a pilgrimage to Nashville to capture their authentic sound. They shacked up for two weeks in the backyard cabin/studio of producer Adam Landry (Deer Tick, Middle Brother), and found themselves. They recorded everything live, straight to analog tape. The result was a warm, vintage sound that displays the band's explosive live energy. Their new EP, Nothing & The Famous No One, takes the listener back to that cabin to experience the raw vibe, smell the smoke, and feel alive.
Fort Atlantic is analog warmth and digital madness, quiet songs of searching and anthemic songs of discovery. “We balance between heartbeats and hard drives,” says Jon Black, singer and writer for Fort Atlantic. Whether it’s the one-take troubadour folk song of suburban escape “New York Lights” or the nine-minute Bladerunner meets Gibson Guitars movement of “I’m Wrong”, Fort Atlantic’s debut truly stretches the divide of the current musical landscape. The live show is a tug-of-war between humanity and technology mirroring the existence of our city streets and signal searching while never losing sight that each song tells our story in this binary.
