Biography

Henry David Thoreau remarked famously that most men live lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song still in them. The North Atlantic are not most men, though they are mostly men, and there is nothing quiet about their desperation. Wild-eyed and hungry, the men have been holed up in their keep on Golden Hill, crafting a sound and message that will make the kids steal their uncles cars and dance like robots.

Triumphing over distance, estrangement and a healthy dose of better judgment, The North Atlantic faces the future armed with whiskey-addled fervor, boundless energy and an abiding desire to quash the pessimism and stagnancy born of a million micro-genre obsessed musical taxonomists, holier-than-thou scenesters and kids who think theyve seen and heard it all. The North Atlantic is rising…Iceland will be swallowed.

    Why more people aren't listening to this band, I'll never know. They actually have something to say, and they do it loudly. So good, so loud, so rock and roll.
