Mixing influences of psychedelic, indie-electronic, and garage-rock with upbeat guitar-heavy jams, Toronto-based indie groove-rock troop ATOM & THE VOLUMES might not have any serious recordings under their belts – yet – but they’re definitely worth keeping an eye out for.

Fronted by actor/guitarist/vocalist Marc Atom Borins, and featuring guitarist/keyboardist Bradley Snider (Neverending White Lights), drummer Michael Grundy, and bassist Gabe Kugelmass, recordings are allegedly well-underway for this quartet. Until then, check out “Boardwalk” and “Gonna Lose Me” from their demo jam cuts (on Soundcloud) below.

The band also seems to have a flair for the comic book side of things art-wise (especially in their poster art), which you can check out over on Facebook.
