Jsun Atoms’ inspirations include Moon Duo, Nick Cave and Spiritualized, an influence which is strongly evident in the opening tracks to this understated debut freak out. It was produced by Dandy Warhols’ Peter Holmström who exchanged mixes with Jsun through the pandemic to complete the album.

There’s a dreamlike hippy vibe menacingly disturbed by Atoms’ breathy spoken vocals front and centre in the mix, which occasionally stretches into Cohen-illuminated pop, particularly on the tracks Don’t Take Me To Your Leader, with its child like cut-out animated promo video, and Fell For You with its distinct Yello Euro groove. Atoms’ music also features in many TV shows like Sons Of Anarchy, True Blood and on the award-winning arthouse movie Neolovismo.
