Black Atlass 'The Black Atlas EP' / "Castles" (video)
Published Aug 22, 2012London, ON's Alex Fleming wasn't even old enough to vote when he recorded his debut EP as Black Atlass. Now 18, the electronic songwriter has released The Black Atlass EP as a free download, in addition to dropping a new video.
Fleming recorded these dark, R&B-leaning tracks in his basement while still in high school. According to a press sheet, his influences include Frank Zappa, Frank Ocean and Prince. The EP was mastered and reissued on Tuesday (August 21). Download it for free right here.
Watch a video for the smouldering, noise-drenched track "Castles" below. The clip effectively conveys the song's nocturnal mood, although it strangely cuts down the three-and-a-half-minute EP version to just two minutes.
