We love the indie scene over here at Festivals4Life. We’re always looking for new, unique sounds and we’ve found just that in up-and-comer Tim Atlas. Tim has been forging his own lane with his distinctive brand of groovy, 80’s-inspired indie pop, and with his new EP, All Talk!, he’s about to take the indie world by storm.
Tim Atlas is a do-it-yourself kind of guy. After a chance encounter lead Tim to perform for Pharrell and Rihanna, Tim decided to abandon the security of his photography gig and relocate to Los Angeles to pursue music full-time. Tim immediately got to work producing for other artists while writing, recording, and producing his own record. Not wasting any time looking for an agent, manager, or label, Tim began releasing singles independently and self-booking tours across North America and Europe.
Tim’s music has since soared on the viral charts, amassing an impressive 15 million streams on Spotify. Tim has also captured the attention of fellow indie superstars, Young the Giant, who asked him to open for the LA debut of their side project, American Pets.
We’re excited to share Tim’s second EP, All Talk!. The record has a vintage, timeless feel to it with songs that you can’t help but groove along to. The theme of the album is committing to ourselves and our promises. “When you hear that someone is “All Talk”, it means that they tend to promise a lot, but in the end, they don’t deliver,” explains Tim. “This record is about backing our words up with actions, even in the face of fear.” Tim also says the record was inspired by a variety of other artists including Hall & Oates, Tame Impala, and Toro y Moi.
Accompanying the release, Tim will be playing a West Coast tour with friends No Vacation and Hot Flash Heat Wave. Later in March, you can catch him at SXSW where he’ll be playing multiple showcases. And if you’re in LA, you can catch his official showcase with School Night LA (who have formerly showcased artists such as Haim, Miguel, and Alt-J) on April 30th at 9:00pm.
