The Weather Station Shares Daring New Song ‘Atlantic’

"The feeling of dread... of knowing that everything you see is in peril."

The Weather Station has shared daring new song 'Atlantic'.

The project is led by Tamara Lindeman, with new album 'Ignorance' set to land on February 5th.

New single 'Atlantic' is a hint of what's in store on that extraordinary album, a swirling mesh of sounds that recalls Talk Talk at their most experimental.

It's driven by a real sense of purpose, an attempt to pin down the lingering dystopian threats that seem to swirl around our daily lives.

Accomplished with gravitas and no small degree of beauty, 'Atlantic' dips into what The Weather Station refers to as "that feeling of dread…"

She explains: "Trying to capture something of the slipping feeling I think we all feel, the feeling of dread, even in beautiful moments, even when you’re a little drunk on a sea cliff watching the sun go down while seabirds fly around you; that slipping feeling is still there, that feeling of dread, of knowing that everything you see is in peril…"

"I feel like I spend half my life working on trying to stay positive. My whole generation does. But if you spend any time at all reading about the climate situation circa now, positivity and lightness are not fully available to you anymore; you have to find new ways to exist and to see, even just to watch the sunset. I tried to make the band just go crazy on this one, and they did. This is one where the music really makes me see the place in my mind; the flute and the guitar chasing each other, wheeling around like birds, the drums cliff like in their straightness; I love the band on this one."

Tune in now.

'Ignorance' will be released on February 5th.
