Having released their second studio album earlier this year, Gengahr are back with a brand new stand-alone single ‘Atlas Please’, out now via Transgressive Records.
‘Atlas Please’ is the first collaborative effort between the Hackney-based indie rock group and the song’s producer, Jack Steadman (Bombay Bicycle Club, Mr Jukes). It stands as one of the band’s most accomplished pieces of work to date.
Across its three minutes it marries swirling lo-fi instrumentation and production with shimmering pop idealism giving an intriguing new direction to their illuminating, forward thinking indie rock.
Listen to ‘Atlas Please’ by Gengahr now on the official Fantasy Premier League Music Playlist on Spotify.
The single is a follow-up to the band’s second full length album, ‘Where Wildness Grows’, which was released in March this year.
Of the track, vocalist and guitarist Felix Bushe offers:
“‘Atlas Please’ is us considering that our lasting memories are the ones shared in good company – although, at times it can feel as though the weight of the world is resting on your shoulders.
“Talking to friends and considering our own personal experiences, we’re mindful that we often find it easier to suffer in silence than to open up – so being able to identify when someone you care about is hurting and to make the time to help them is an incredibly important and powerful thing to do.
“We hope you all enjoy the song, and look forward to seeing you soon”
In support of their latest release, the band appeared at London’s Brixton Academy in support of Ezra Furman on September 4, before making their way to Wales to perform at Festival No. 6 last weekend to round off a busy festival season for the band.
Over the coming months, Gengahr will begin working on more new material.
