The Atomics
The Atomics
The Atomics, whose sound has been described as upbeat rock 'n' roll meets surf groove, are comprised of the sibling quartet, Starlie (vocals & rhythm guitar) Daisy Clementine (lead guitar), Pyper America (bass) and Lucky Blue (drums). As well as being accomplished musicians, each of the four members are successful well-known models, all of whom have been seen in several major campaigns including Gap and Tom Ford among many others.

In April 2015, their first single, "Too Late" was released, which coincided with drummer, Lucky Blue's appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Since that time, press around the band has been growing exponentially, with a recent cover and feature in WWD along with additional features and articles in Vanity Fair Italia, XOXO The Magazine and Vogue.

Taking into account their aggregated social media footprint of over 4.5 million followers, the stage has been set for 2016 to be The Atomics' breakout year.
Chase Atlantic
Chase Atlantic
A trio of two brothers and one longtime friend who personally produce, perform, and
passionately conjure up dark alternative pop punctuated by rock and R&B, Australia’s
Chase Atlantic blur the lines between a nocturnal aesthetic and primal bliss on their
2017 self-titled debut for Warner Bros. Records.
This delicate balance quietly transformed the group—Mitchel Cave, Clinton Cave, and
Christian Anthony—into a veritable sensation down under while still in their teens. Since
forming in 2011, the boys have packed multiple headline tours across Australia,
amassed an impressive digital footprint of followers, released two successful
independent EPs, Dalliance [2014] and Nostalgia [2015], and spawned a viral single
with “Friends,” which garnered an incredibly large count of Spotify plays.
However, their shared ambition always exceeded the confines of the bedroom studio
where they initially recorded.
“While all of our friends were doing gap years and finding themselves, we were working
on getting the world to notice us,” admits Mitchel. “We made this agreement within the
band that we weren’t just going to stay in Australia. We wanted to sign to an
international label, and we wouldn’t stop until that happened.”
“What we were doing was different for Australia,” adds Christian. “It felt like we were the
only ones putting out music that we produced and made entirely by ourselves. That’s
the process. It’s real.”
That spirit caught the attention of the Madden Brothers during 2015. Multiple meetings
in Australia followed, and the three-piece signed with the industry icons music company,
MDDN. In 2016, Chase Atlantic flew to Los Angeles scoring a deal with Warner Bros.
Records.
“The Maddens locked us away in a Burbank studio for three months and threw away the
key. We really got to preserve that organic sound,” says Clinton.
Without outside influences, the three-piece produced, played, and recorded every note,
including saxophone. Along the way, they honed and fine-tuned a definitive style equally
reverent of Tame Impala and Skrillex as it is of The Weeknd and Travi$ Scott.
“To us, production is the most important thing,” Mitchel goes on. “It’s the most critical
element of creativity. We push ourselves to further what we can do every day, whether
it’s producing or playing. We really found our musical identity this past year.”
Now, Chase Atlantic roars to life on the first single “Church.” Glitchy synths blip in the
background as Mitchel’s breathy voice haunts and hypnotizes. Bells ring while the
hook—“I’m about to take you back to church”—simply seduces.
“It’s very forward, sexual, and aggressive,” explains Mitchel. “The lyrics are sexualizing
religion in a way, and the song ends up being the complete and total opposite of what
church really means to most people.”
Elsewhere on the record, the airy “Into It” tempers a downtempo groove with an
unshakable refrain before a jazz-y saxophone solo takes the spotlight. “It represents the
transition into a new, more intense lifestyle,” says Christian. “You’re acknowledging that
this something you’re into and can roll with. It’s our story.”
Meanwhile, “Right Here” urges for a carpe diem moment within a relationship. “It
basically says, ‘Fuck everybody else. It’s just you and me’,” Mitchel reveals. “All that
matters is the two of us in this moment.”
Ultimately, Chase Atlantic forge a lasting connection through that honesty.
“The one thing we want people to take away from the music is this element of really
feeling themselves,” Mitchel leaves off. “A song can make you go, ‘Fuck yeah,’ and
you’re thinking about it and singing it all day. You’re not left underwhelmed. You’re
overwhelmed. We want that.”
“And world domination,” agrees Clinton.
