It's garage punk with a hearty dose of good old fashioned rock 'n' roll....and it's awesome.
“It took a while for me to realize that you’re gonna drive yourself insane comparing other people’s success to your own. I think writing this song helped me figure that out”.
Those are the words of The Atom Age frontman Peter Niven about the band’s new track ‘High Class Motherfuckers‘.
It’s a raucous, stomping track full of twang, attitude and 1950s homage with a distinctly modern, edgy twist.
A great vocal turn from Niven oozes charisma, backed by his five band members who rock the h-e-double-hockey-sticks out of the guitar, bass, drums, saxophone and organ!
The combination of electric vocals, fuzz-out riffs, and moody garage sludge gives the message a powerful base to stand on. The carefully-crafted catharsis that follows pays homage to the sound of decades past and establishes The Atom Age as garage-punk renaissance paragons.
The Atom Age hail from the Bay Area and are comprised of: Peter Niven (vocals); Ryan Perras (guitar); Tim Harman (drummer); Brendan Frye (saxophone); Fred Brott (organ) and Randy Moore on bass.
‘High Class Motherfuckers’ is out now. Find your listening options HERE.
