ATOMSMASHER music is ultra-catchy, guitar-driven power-pop with surprising twists and turns that leave listeners wanting more. Drawing from a myriad of influences, including the Beatles, the Pixies, Stanley Kubrick, XTC, George Orwell and Julian Cope, singer/guitarist Ed Marshall has developed a unique songwriting style, producing a huge catalog of songs from which the band draws its substantial repertoire. They have developed a large, loyal following with their energetic and exciting performances in New York City and surrounding areas. Incorporating complex three-part harmony vocals into their powerful rock sound, ATOMSMASHER shows are musical and distinctive in a way that is often missing in rock music today. New bassist Stephen Scollard joins keyboard player Brett Erenberg, drummer Ron Cohen and Marshall to form the strongest live version of the band yet.
ATOMSMASHER started their career with a bang, landing a song, “Lovely Head,” on the WB sitcom, Nick Freno, Licensed Teacher. They quickly released their acclaimed debut CD, Up & Atom, featuring "Sick,” "Maybe," and "5 Day Weekend." Attracting strong college radio airplay, it captured the band at an exciting time in its existence.
Now, the band has re-emerged with their brand new self-produced CD, All Around The World. Recorded in Marshall's studio in suburban NY, the CD exhibits new levels of musicianship and songwriting. He explains, “We took the time to learn the technology so that we could do everything ourselves and fully express our ideas. We were also freed financially to take as long as we wanted until we were satisfied. It took awhile, but I’m ecstatic with the results.” One listen to potential alt-rock hits like "She Was Gone," "High" and "Very Hungry" proves Marshall was right. Clearly, this is a band that THINKS and ROCKS! The diversity that the group is known for continues with 13 new forays into disparate rock styles, but as always, each song is still recognizably ATOMSMASHER.
