Bells Atlas emerges from the vibrant cultural and musical backdrop of Oakland, CA. Blending heavy percussion, soulful vocal harmonies, and thoughtful arrangements, this dynamic group has arrived at a sound that is uniquely their own, calling it Afro-Indie Soul. They capture the spirit of an eclectic range of influences, including Highlife, Hip-Hop, Samba, R&B and aspects of Indie Pop. Since the release of their first album in June, Bells Atlas is quickly drawing a wide audience with diverse tastes.
This First Friday, September 6, Bells Atlas will be performing at Oaklandish. DJ Dion Decibels will be holding it down before and after their set. 1444 Broadway, 7-10pm.
