Hailing from Brooklyn during a revitalization of the New York rock scene, Atomic Tom grew up surrounded by indie giants Interpol, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and the Strokes. Atomic Tom crafted their inaugural album, titled The Moment, in the confines of a third-floor Brooklyn apartment with mics in the bathtub and amps piled high in the bedroom closet while fending off noise complaints and a generous detective or two.
After selling out iconic New York clubs, Atomic Tom signed with Republic Records and Sony/ATV. After their album release was delayed, Atomic Tom took their career back by filming their iPhone performance of “Take Me Out” on the New York B Train and their performance racked up 2 million views in less than a week. The stunt propelled Atomic Tom on a year-long tornado that included performances on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, George Lopez Tonight!, Rachel Ray, CNN, E!.
Atomic Tom followed up their first viral single with a headlining US tour and their cover of Human League’s “Don’t You Want Me”. The release was included in the 80’s throwback film “Take Me Home Tonight” and was accompanied by a viral music video featuring Anna Faris, Teresa Palmer, Dan Fogler and Topher Grace.
After three years and a departure from Republic Records, ERA was independently released in 2015. Their single “Someone to Love” was featured on the New Music Friday, Alt-Good and Chill playlists. Atomic Tom is back in the studio carving out LP #3 which will drop in 2024.
