The ShortListen: Atom Tree (no. 343)

Who? Atom Tree

What’s the story? There's clearly something synthy in the water in Glasgow (or the deep-fried Mars bars), for after the success of Chvrches comes what sounds like their natural successors, in the form of newcomers Atom Tree - a duo of 'Julie and Shaun' according to their Facebook page. Body is more to the dancier end of things than Chvrches, with a touch of a Disclosure-ish early nineties vibe as well as a dash of countryman Calvin Harris. They might only just be starting out but this, with a big old chorus, sounds like a hit to us.

For fans of: Chvrches, Calvin Harris, Disclosure.

In three words: Intelligent dance pop
