Platon Karataev’s new album ‘Atoms’ – Most internationally streamed indie band

With this new material we have moved away from our softer, acoustic sounding first LP towards a more louder, more complex sound. ‘Atoms’ is about searching after our innermost self and also about questioning everything. Throughout the songs there is a sense of falling – either towards our self or away from it. Catharsis is a key idea in the album, something one experiences when approaching the inner self, the core.

During the past two years we have experienced this encountering while writing the songs of this LP. The album itself reflects a sort of emptiness, focusing on states of abandonment and the sense of floating. It also resolves an anxiety stemming from questioning former values. A neverending wrestle with transcendent beings as we are all “splinters in God’s numb palm”.
