Indie-pop four-piece band Rebel Westerns are thrilled to announce the release of their forthcoming single Atomic Blonde, due for release on 9th September 2016 via Depot Records.
Exploring themes of relationships, infidelity and the in built human desire that often propel us to make self destructive decisions, the track premiered on Clash and is available to stream via the band’s Soundcloud page now.
Showcasing their synth inspired indie pop, Rebel Westerns manage to strike the right balance between contemporary pop music and the kind of neon tinted 80’s new wave that would have Molly Ringwood shaking her hips. Encapsulating the very best traits of the band, Atomic Blonde opens with snapping drum beats playfully interacting with popping bass lines, lifted by soaring, melodic vocals and combined effortlessly with the uplifting sounds of synth dreamily washing over you.
Comprised of Dominic Thomson (vocals, guitar), Callum Munro (bass), Glen Gordon (keyboard) and Daniel Garvie (drums), the four school friends formed in 2014 after spending a number of years in various bands who were prevalent on the Scottish music scene. The decision to join forces was justified instantly with the band picking up support from the likes of Dermot O’leary’s BBC Radio 2 show, Amazing Radio, Jim Gellatly and The Scottish Sun as well as playing sold out shows at King Tut’s and Cabaret Voltaire.
To celebrate the release of Atomic Blonde Rebel Westerns will be playing La Bell Angele in Edinburgh on 23rd September and have plans to release an EP later in the year.
Atomic Blonde by Rebel Westerns is out 9th September 2016 via Depot Records.
