Atlas are to play a show at Monroe’s this Thursday with support act ECHO.
In 2014, Atlas began to work on their debut album and in 2015, Atlas started a campaign to gain funding for their record Affinity.
Atlas are Cillian Doheny and Cillian King.
“Atlas seamlessly blends traditional Irish folk elements with pop melodicism into something really colorful. Taught interplay between acoustic guitar and concertina, with world fusion rhythmic elements. It’s very cinematic music.” – Mark Lettieri (Snarky Puppy)
“I like this album a lot. Atlas manage to combine youthful fearlessness with a high degree of musical maturity. We’re used to hearing brilliant young traditional musicians these days but rarely with this sense of adventure and producing music as coherent and eloquent as this”. – Niall Valley (Buille)
Doors open at 8pm at Monroe’s.
