Tim Atlas Shares Uptempo New Song “Wallflower”
November 10, 2020 BY Nettwerk
After releasing the fantastic “Cold Shoulder” single last month, Oakland-born, LA-based DIY writer/producer and multi-instrumentalist Tim Atlas has shared another slice of up-tempo grooves, full of warm pop nuances and soulful sensibilities. The new song “Wallflower” is about finding a grove amongst the chaos and taking mental health breaks for oneself. As with his previous material, Atlas penned, recorded, and mixed the track himself.
With a brilliant network of R&B-infused indie-pop and woozy atmospherics, Atlas skillfully blends analog and digital sounds with steady beats. Citing influences from Rex Orange County to Toro y Moi to Omar Apollo, he creates nostalgic, bedroom vibes that effortlessly combine musical genres and histories into one dynamic soundscape.
After making waves with two EPs – All Talk! (2018) and Together Lonely (2019) – Atlas earned support from radio tastemakers like Zane Lowe on Beats 1, BBC Radio 1, LA’s famed KCRW, and media folks like Complex, CLASH, EARMILK, Paste, The Line of Best Fit, Under the Radar, to name a few. After amassing over 40 million streams and love from Spotify and Apple Music, Atlas embarked on a global tour with key shows in London, New York, and Los Angeles; debuting his first festival appearances at The Great Escape Festival in the UK and Noise Pop in San Francisco, CA.
As a multi-faceted creative, Atlas is also a photographer, videographer, and graphic designer. He conceived and directed the animated video for the previous single “Cold Shoulder” (watch the video). A true DIY indie musician with a clear vision of his art and voice.
Tim Atlas is currently in the studio recording his forthcoming new EP to be released on Nettwerk Records in 2021. Stay tuned for more info in the coming months.
