Here’s a nice Thursday pick-me-up to usher in the weekend. “Naked” is the latest single from Liverpool-based New Atlas, the indie-pop project from Irish-born 19 year-old Owen O’Hagan. We all need a sad song we can dance to and this is giving me an early 80s new wave-ish pop vibe on a similar wavelength to the Cure. So promising for someone so young.
New Atlas began in just March of this year, after being named one of BBC Northern
Ireland’s hottest new acts by Huw Stephens (Radio One) and now praised by big names like Clash and Shortlist Magazine.
