Atwood are an alternative rock band from Milan, Italy
Hailing from the fertile rock breeding ground of Milan, Italy, Atwood introduced themselves to the local scene with the release of their first single – Black Mirror, which was just the beginning of a storyline.
Their debut EP, “at odds”, delivered in November 2018, has been defined as “a seamless blend of pop, alternative rock, synth and electronics and some post-hardcore influences flowing into one melting pot of sound, enriched by alluring vocals”.
The band immediately started working up a strong following in Milan’s pop-punk, alternative scene, playing shows with icons such as Eyes Set to Kill and Lost.
2019 definitely did not let them down. After winning Kleisma’s “Nuove prospettive” contest, Atwood got the chance to play at 1MNext final, and later went on to play Drink’em All Festival.
On October 2019, Atwood released Dance in the sun, marking the beginning of a new approach to their songwriting and lyrical content: catchy, yet meaningful, poppy, yet well rounded.
On April 30th, the band released another single off the upcoming EP, called Ghost. The track masterfully merges modern pop ambiences with a melancholic, earworm-like pop punk chorus ready to get clubs jumping. In October, Ghost is aired on Radio ROKS, Ukraine.
With the following single, “Out of the blue”, released on Nov 21st 2020, Atwood delivered a more pop-focused approach to their usual electronic-rock sound, continuing the more mainstream sound they teased on “Dance in the sun”.
On April 3rd 2021, Atwood released their 4th single – the track, called “So Bad”, is yet another shift for Atwood in terms of sound, which had already evolved between the singles released so far.
Atwood were selected as MTV New Generation Artist of the Month for July, and “So Bad” is currently being played on MTV Italia.
Atwood is about to drop their latest single, “Parallel Lines”.
