UK Artist of the Week: Atom Eyes

This week’s AOTW comes from Scotland’s Atom Eyes. The Edinburgh collective have unveiled their latest single, “Roll The Dice,” a jazz-funk infused odyssey epitomizing the eclectic, spacey grooves that have become synonymous with their sound.

Formed in 2017, Atom Eyes are comprised of vocalist Lissa Chen and backed by award-winning jazz pianist Alan Benzie, guitarist Fraser Christie, and the formidable rhythm section of drummer Scott Jamieson and bassist Tom Wilkinson. The quintet’s unerring ability to combine a cross section of genres, from neo-soul to R&B and funk to jazz, has seen them take centre stage the Edinburgh Jazz and Blues Festival.

“Roll The Dice” is the first cut from Atom Eyes’ debut album and is the perfect illustration of their syncopated soundscapes. Opening with grooving, head bopping bass lines, the song is propelled at a rate of knots by Lissa Chen’s smooth, soulful vocals and accented beautifully by funky guitar segments, melodic keys, and complex drum beats.

“Roll The Dice” is an exhilarating single recalling artists such as 30/70 and Moonchild. Breathless and beguiling, it gives you a tantalising taste of what to expect over the coming months from an effortlessly talented band.

“Roll The Dice” is in stores now and is taken from the debut album due for release in Spring 2022.
