Editors’ Notes

From early incarnations of the Byrds being described as “America’s answer to the Beatles” to the Dandy Warhols churning early ‘90s Britpop into their own sound, Anglophilia has become a musical genre. Like Interpol or the Rapture, Brooklyn’s Atomic Tom borrows various elements from guitar-based dance-pop bands like Bloc Party, Franz Ferdinand and even Duran Duran to birth an elegantly crafted album that also resonates with bigger brawnier tones. The Moment was tracked in a small New York apartment, but the bouncy opening song “Let Let Go Tonight” reveals a huge, wide-angled sound that could have been recorded at Abbey Road. The title-track jangles and chimes with the mysterious romanticism of the Church’s 1986 opus Heyday, while Atomic Tom’s frontman Luke White croons with a demure cool reminiscent of Richard Butler from the Psychedelic Furs — though there are moments when he can belt out near-falsettos à la Robert Smith from the Cure. “Take Me Out” starts like Pulp’s “Common People” before the band takes over and turns the tune into something more driving with muscled guitars that chug like the engine of a 1967 Camaro.

Customer Reviews

love it

a really great rock/pop record from start to finish. it's edgy and melodic with a level of accessibility that not many bands have achieved without sounding overly fabricated. these guys seem to do rock/pop with taste and sophistication. sing along choruses, powerful vocals, tasty guitar parts, melodic bass lines, huge drums, pianos, keyboards and even string sections.. the album feels full of variety and depth.. a total trip.. and built for the masses.. i admit i am curious to see how these songs translate live.. but either way, i'm into it. i don't doubt this record will be playing over and over on my ipod for months to come. some immediate standouts: "The Moment", "We Were Never Meant To Be", "Play That Dirty Girl", and "Red Light Warning Sign".

Absolutely Amazing!

Atomic Tom is PHENOMENAL, with incredible musicianship and relatable tunes. The album is stellar! Great production and mix. These guys are legit, and I look forward to more of their live performances (which I can't recommend highly enough!) Do yourself a favor, buy the album and go see 'em!

Dying For A Good Rock Album?

It's been a long time since I bought an album that I went crazy about. This album totally blew me away. Too many albums are a bunch of poorly written ideas and 1 good single. Here every song has that fun beat and catchy lyrics that'll make you walk away singing it. The Moment is an album of singles.

The Moment, Atomic Tom
