While touring with their previous band, Mike and Emil Favila would often take turns picking the soundtrack. The playlist? It would be Radiohead's bleeps + bloops in the morning, or maybe Boyz II Men after lunch. Daft Punk would blare on the way to the show. At night, after packing up, they would lulled by the Cure on the way back to Super 8.
With their new band, the brothers decided to combine bits of all those influences and make it their own. They worked furiously in their basement studio and came up with Build It Again, an album that retains the pop efficiency of their old band, while veering into wild directions that would have never made sense at all those punk rock shows.
Atoms Apart are finishing recordings now and playing shows to promote Built It Again. Their first single is called "Less". It is available on Bandcamp and Reverbnation.
