Bells Atlas
Bells Atlas
Bells Atlas emerges from the vibrant cultural and musical backdrop of Oakland, CA. Blending heavy percussion, soulful vocal harmonies, and thoughtful arrangements, this dynamic group captures the spirit of eclectic influences and draw a wide audience with diverse tastes, setting the stage from a world their own- a place to discover and explore through wonder, sonic landscapes and movement.

"Bells Atlas are an Oakland four-piece crafting angular, entrancing tunes — last year's Hyperlust EP was a tightly crafted and soulful piece of Afropop futurism... uplifting and handling a non-commitment to genre both skillfully and with a sense of euphoria." - The FADER

"The California band sound alluringly exotic... they're the complete mystical package." -NME Magazine

"Eminently chill and sexy in equal measure but with out of this world complexity and musical sophistication".... "This is the kind of record that kickstarts movements"- Afropunk
