Lower Than Atlantis are back! They have recently made a huge comeback with their appropriately named new single ‘Here We Go’ taken from their upcoming self-titled album Lower Than Atlantis, out 29th September.
The track opens with downtuned guitars which instantly give an edgier, heavier vibe to the song just seconds in, proving that they still are in touch with their roots of being a heavy band. The raw vocals are executed perfectly by Mike Duce (vocals and guitar), and the incredibly catchy main riff and the super-low bass lines are both expertly performed. This track honestly could not get better. The repetitive “Here we go” and “We’re coming, we’re coming” in the song gets you excited for the new material from this band, they really are up and coming right back into the charts – you could even say they’re “Raging on like a locomotive”!
Mike Duce recently said if this album isn’t received well it could be their last, however this is unlikely to be the case – in under 48 hours, Here We Go is already creeping into the Top 40, getting excessive plays on Radio 1 and has the potential to be their biggest single to date!
The band have also released a music video for the song (which can be seen above) which is completely a performance video – no narrative, no storyline, no distractions, it just focuses on the band and it shows off their energy and their pure passion for music. It also makes sure to give attention to all members of the band, highlighting the talent of Eddy (drums), Dec (bass) and Ben (guitar) as well as Mike, going against most modern music videos which tend to focus on the lead singer.
All in all, the track and video both set the bar very high and have built a lot of anticipation for the release of Lower Than Atlantis later this year. So, “Here we go”, let’s see what other hits this album has to offer!
