Gdansk – Atlas

Gdansk is a band based out of Ontario who dabble a bit in organic and electronic sounds. Though the vocals on their latest song, “Atlas”, are heavily coated in effects, there’s something remarkably human about it. I think it might be because the track seems to be loaded with emotion. “Atlas” is really a slow burner. A minimal electronic pattern sets the scene while some keys set the mood, allowing you to soak in the lyrics. At some point, the song peaks into an epic anthem complete with a bold electric guitar that could have been plucked straight out of the Top Gun soundtrack. It really creates a feeling of power. The outcome is a truly excellent song, and although the voice may seem robotic, I found myself easily connecting with Gdansk’s sound.
