Wrapping up another premiere week, we got another haunting and incredible track for you to enjoy – A Is For Atom’s Mike Cykoski is back with his new single “Rainbows”. The song is filled with eerie sounds effects that blends perfectly with the vocals that reminds us to Dave Gahan and VAST’s Jon Crosby somberness.
Mike Cykoski, the man behind the arty, literate indie-pop project AIsforAtom, has had a distinguished career in the music business, but a few transformative events drastically altered his path. Now, he welcomes a new era experimenting with pop dance, electronic compositions inspired by classic rock, and an electronic crooner track.
Mike has always been a fearless composer. He studied formally at NYU, earning a master’s degree in Music Technology, as well as at Julliard, experimental music center Harvest Works, and DJ school Dubspot.
His last EP, Song for You, garnered prime visibility in the press and onstage. Aside from regular shows in and shows in New York City, he has performed nationally and internationally in Ireland, Mexico City, Toronto, for NXNE and Canadian Music Week, and twice at SXSW.
Mike is releasing a new EP in September which isa collaboration with up-and-coming producer Carey Clayton (Emily Thomas, Ian Abel, Mary Akpa, Stephanie Rivers–Guitar Player-Great Good Fine Ok and David Wax Museum).
