Montreal’s Atsuko Chiba fearlessly cross genre-defining borders with a unique blend of progressive, psychedelic, post-rock, funk, and krautrock.
The band’s live performances uniquely combine their sound-based creative practices and live-triggered projections to create immersive sensorial environments. Over the years, they have shared the stage with 65daysofstatic, Caspian, Duchess Says, Tricot, Indian Handcrafts, If These Trees Could Talk, The Alarmist, Arms and Sleepers and Little Tybee, among others.
The inimitable psychedelic-prog rockers are back with Trace —their second full-length album. The eight-song collection, mastered by Chris Common (Chelsea Wolfe, Mastodon, Isis), encapsulates relentless riffs and dexterously performed rhythms that feed off herds of intertwining melodies and otherworldly soundscapes.
Atsuko Chiba’s daring musical blend will please fans of Tool, The Mars Volta, and Mogwai, all the while resonating with vintage rock aficionados.
