Atlas Sound – Angel Is Broken

November 2, 2011

Kind of like the Beach Boys, Bradford Cox has always managed to display a facade of somewhat light-hearted pop that simultaneously evokes feelings of melancholia and disappointment. This is what makes his albums under the moniker Atlas Sound so powerful; depending on what mood you catch him in, you are either going to discover that life is one fat unfulfilled promise OR that love makes it all worth it. He truly is dynamic in every sense of the word, and this track, “Angel is Broken,” demonstrates that his upcoming album, Parralax, is going to be another showcase of the dynamism.
