Those who keep an ear to the subterranean understand the importance of Atmosphere. As one of the quintessential "underground" acts, Slug and Ant have penned some beautiful music together, bringing forth literary lyricism unlike anything atop the Billboard charts. Though occasionally written off as backpacker music, Atmosphere remain fixtures in the scene, continuously dropping off new music for those more than willing to remain loyal. Today, the duo have returned with a new offering, "Make It All Better Again," served with the accompanying news of a tour announcement.
The single finds Ant lacing a soft-spoken, almost alternative-rock styled ballad; Slug takes to the heavy-hitting percussion with a vivid narrative, painting the portrait of an introverted wanderer. Not quite a basement dweller, but borderline, and recently dumped for his troubles. Slug's pen game remains on point, though the sentimental instrumental may prove irksome for those seeking a return to "Cats Van Bags." Peep "Make It All Better Again" now, and should you be interested in catching Atmosphere in the flesh, behold the extensive tour dates here.
He's so exhausted of mourning his losses
Doing his best just to cope with the process
A grown man can't depend on a promise
Plus you gotta be careful not to be too cautious, right?
