The Road Atlas - ‘Two Tone Blues’

Words by Charles Patterson 
The Road Atlas is a multicultural lot. Julian, Fabrizio and Andreas are from Costa Rica, Italy and Greece respectively, but their sound is much more mainstream; best described as alt-rock with a hint of punk.

Two Tone Blues is their second release and brings with it a promising sound. The lead single We Were Young is a coming-of-age punk-rock banger, but it's the title track that really showcases their maturity when it comes to lyrical content. Singing somewhat topically after the ups and downs of 2017about the realisation that everyone makes mistakes, but the ability to get up and get on will always be there.

Bourbon and Coke follows in the same vein, talking about turning to the bottle in dark times, but finding the strength to overcome it. Positivity is a key theme on the EP and the guys have every reason to be just that.

New single Roses and Maps was released in January and with two more on the way in the coming months, an album must be lurking just around the corner. The Road Atlas may not be a household name yet, but they are more than capable of holding their own against some of the more established alt-rock artists.
