The second video from Atlas’ new album ‘Primitive’ was released on October 5, 2018; the sixth track of the album ‘Pareidolia’ is a forlorn song full of emotion set against the aggressive and fast music Atlas has been gracing us with since their conception.
‘Pareidolia’ was released alongside the full length and both feature pristine production with melancholic lyrics and exquisite guitar tones. The pensive video is morose, but also conveys a sense of fortitude. It was filmed somewhere in Finland in June 2016 by Nikke Puskala and Patrik Nuorteva, and edited by Patrik Nuorteva and Tuomas Kurikka of Perish Films.
