X92.9 Calgary's Alternative Xposure Show presents: GOODWOOD ATOMS with Boreal Sons and special guests live at The Gateway on Friday, September 22nd.


Vancouver's Goodwood Atoms blends ethereal melodies with insistent grooves and electronic flourishes, inspired by the likes of Yeasayer, Youth Lagoon and Radiohead.

Since forming in 2014, they have earned accolades from the likes of Noisey, Clash, Indie Shuffle, Baeble Music, PopMatters, Impose Magazine and All Things Go. They've released a 6 track EP on March 24th, 2017 and will be releasing a follow-up 4 track EP on May 12th, 2017 through the French label Yunizon Records.

Goodwood Atoms' new record saw them collaborate with a number of Vancouver music luminaries including Nygel Asselin (Half Moon Run), Shawn Cole (You Say Party!), Jon Anderson (Said the Whale) and Dave Vertesi (Hey Ocean!)


Out from the swirling synth fury that fills the first seconds of Boreal Sons’ sophomore album You & Everyone, comes the tangled, sonorous voice of Evan Acheson who sings, “I guess we just forgot this would happen to you and everyone / Here and then you’re not.” It’s an opening line that’s akin to a gasp and welcomes you to their new record by giving you a shake and making your heart beat fast.

Under the guidance of producer Jonathan Anderson, who also produced Threadbare, You & Everyone is a textured and emotive affair: a panoply of synths, keyboards, and percussion. The intricate “Strangers” twinkles like the lights of a cityscape, while Schultz’s commanding drum work in album opener “What Becomes” amplifies the song’s revelation, and “Midnight Mass,” cast in the dark shadow of McLean’s distorted bass notes, moves from somber to celebratory when the band becomes satisfied to resign to a higher power.
