About this item

Hailing from Denver (Colorado USA) and disparate points around the UK, Blind Atlas came together in the bohemian suburbs of south Manchester; united by a shared preoccupation with drinking, failed relationships and the Flying Burrito Brothers.

Led by singer/guitarist Ross Thompson, Blind Atlas concoct a new take on American alternative country and classic British Rock ‘n’ Roll; taking inspiration from The Rolling Stones to Townes Van Zandt right through to artists such as Calexico and Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy.

Familiar faces on the Manchester circuit, Blind Atlas have notched up headline slots at some of the most iconic venues in the city, as well as supporting the likes of The Acorn, Blitzen Trapper, Buffalo Tom, The Features, and The Bees

'... grizzled vocals and a heart-wrenching lyric sheet … think Ryan Adams fronting The Black Keys, or perhaps Fleet Foxes with a Led Zeppelin fixation; and clearly all designed to soundtrack long, whisky-addled nights of anguished soul-searching'. - City Life.
