Meet North Atlas, a Scottish Celtic rock band on the cusp of breaking through in the alternative music world. The quartet was formed in 2018 and is comprised of brothers Leon and Cam Hunter, Arran Tarvet and Michael Hall. The band’s unique and captivating sound represents a perfect combination of traditional Celtic music with a modern approach.
In January 2019, just before the COVID-19 pandemic, North Atlas played a Primordial Presents show at Bannermans in Edinburgh, we had the honour of seeing them in their infancy, and it was evident then that there was something exceptional about not only the band’s sound but also their approach to music-making and fan engagement as individuals.
The band’s rise was undoubtedly slowed by the pandemic, yet the subsequent time spent in lockdown notably influenced their songwriting.
Speaking to Primordial Radio in 2021, frontman Leon Hunter confirmed this impact:
