Ática are Carlos and Guille, the union of two nerds from La Zubia, Granada, Spain.
They both grew up playing in some local bands and orbiting genres ranging from progressive to post-hardcore.
In early 2019, with the intention of feeling liberated from the complex workings of guitar-led bands, they joined forces to form a project using solo bass and drums. From the beginning they have tried to mold their sound by obeying the voice of their guts and anxieties, and the result is a cavernous, dirty and catchy sound.
Their self-released EP “Attica” from January 2020 was loud enough to attract Mai Lei Bel’s interest in the band …
Explosive, dirty, deafening, sometimes even brutal.
All of these words could be used to describe his new recording and debut for Mai Lei Bel. Listening to the 8 songs (!!) of the EP will overwhelm you with such an influx of energy that you will have trouble knowing if you are witnessing a live show.
Punk / garage / noise / post-punk / alternative / post-hardcore / grunge / indie rock performed and recorded as loudly and honestly as possible.
This is “1” for Attica.
Just bass, drums and vocals.
And a lot of power, distortion and noise.
