about

Released on homemade cassette tape limited to a mere seven copies, with unique, one-off artwork, You Are an Atlas is the latest album from Now Wakes the Sea. Continuing to explore the worlds of lofi, alternative folk and avant garde drone music, You Are an Atlas finds traditional, acoustic based songwriting juxtaposed with electronic experimentation and elements of sound collage and noise. Slide guitar, spring reverb, and ukulele feature alongside sparse, barren drones, and vocals sung through guitar amps, creating an all encompassing and engrossing aesthetic that is very much unique to this release.

For now, You Are an Atlas will only be released on these seven cassettes; with purchase of a cassette comes an immediate download, and included with the physical tape is an additional download code. Each tape features artwork hand drawn by Glasgow based artist Jennifer Goldie using a mixture of mediums.

Orders will ship in the second week of October.
