Atlas Sound is the solo project of Bradford Cox, the striking and eccentric vocalist for experimental indie rocker act Deerhunter. Cox was born in 1982 in Athens, Georgia, a town whose burgeoning music scene greatly influenced the singer. He identified with the B-52’s while growing up, particularly the late Ricky Wilson, and co-founded Deerhunter with drummer/keyboardist Moses Archuleta in 2001. Deerhunter released two full-length albums and an EP before taking a break in 2007, with the bandmembers citing a desire to sort out their personal lives in the interim. Cox shifted his focus to Atlas Sound, having already issued a split 12″ vinyl and a pair of EPs under the same moniker. Molding his sound from a wide range of influences — including doo wop, electronica, and Elvis Presley — Cox then set to work on Atlas Sound’s full-length debut, Let the Blind Lead Those Who Can See But Cannot Feel. The album appeared in early 2008 and received strong reviews, fueling Cox’s decision to quickly begin work on a second album. Later that year, however, an unfinished copy of the intended sophomore album was leaked from Cox’s MediaFire account, causing the exasperated singer to consider abandoning the project altogether. He eventually returned to the material, polished its rough edges, and released the finished product — now titled Logos — in 2009. Cox followed up with another solo effort in 2011, releasing another album under his Atlas Sound moniker, Parallax.
