A Winged Victory For The Sullen’s new album ATOMOS is now available at all fine record stores.

The second offering from the collaboration of Dustin O’Halloran and Adam Wiltzie (Stars Of The Lid) is an original score for contemporary choreographer Wayne McGregor’s (London Royal Ballet) newest dance piece ATOMOS.

Here is what the press have to say:

“Eleven pieces of music that ring with a mini-maximalism unique to AWVFTS, enveloping you deeper in their splendour with every listen.”  9/10
Loud and Quiet Magazine 

“Atomos is an outstanding, thoughtful piece of work which should see
their reputation rise to a new high”  4,5/5

“It’s as elegant and grandiose and soothing and enveloping as it ever was”  8/10
Drowned in Sound

“The beauty of this record lies primarily in its poise and composure; that it sounds fantastic, at times, just feels like an added bonus”  8/10
– The Line of Best Fit

“Plenty of room is left amongst the arrangements to allow the mind to wander, for images to be conjured, for the music to wrap itself around you.”
– Igloo Magazine

After releasing a first glimpse in the form of the ‘Atomos VII’ EP earlier this year, A Winged Victory For The Sullen finally reveal their second full-length album entitled ‘Atomos’, which besides familiar piano, string and drone sounds also sees the duo introduce flurries of electronics, harp and modular synthesisers.

Wayne McGregor, founder of Random Dance Company and resident choreographer at the Royal Ballet, chose to play the album repeatedly during practices with his core group of dancers. After noticing the group’s reaction with the music, he contacted Adam and Dustin to see if they could write the score for his new oeuvre. The duo were given complete artistic freedom and they treated the score with the same care and attention as their debut album. They recorded more than sixty minutes of music over a four-month period during the summer of 2013 across studios in Brussels, Berlin and Reykjavik, with the help of their long time collaborative sound engineer Francesco Donadello. During the recording process they realised, that this would become their official second studio album. McGregor provided them with the inspiration to expand their sound palette into more electronic territory, whilst keeping their signature chamber sound, resulting in a very unique record.

“As a wise man once said, one who procrastinates their own choosing will inevitably have their choice served to them by circumstance. We had virtually no time for second guessing ourselves. That being said, we tried to balance the discordance between being creative, and fulfilling our duties for a commissioned soundtrack with a very strict deadline, and all the while staying true to our collective melancholy.‘’ – Adam Bryanbaum Wiltzie

“We never imagined 2013 would be such an explosively creative year. The first record took us two years from start to finish, but in the micro span of time over last summer we were able to change the formula for the way we write, record, and let go. It was incredibly liberating.” – Dustin O’Halloran
