The Ataris are four friends creating words and music in the basements and dive bars of the world, while young souls pile into the microphone and spill beer into our effects pedals.
Honest stories and organic sounds, chock full of heart, sincerity and
beautiful mistakes. Played loud and recorded to analog tape.
Sixteen years of traveling the world, several broken down vans and five full length studio albums. The Ataris album “So Long, Astoria” included the tracks “In This Diary” and “The Saddest Song” and sold upwards of 850,000 copies earning the band it’s first gold record.
Strife can manifest itself in many ways, but how you react to strife is ultimately what counts. Toronto’s Teenage Kicks have endured countless conflicts and transformed their own strife into both a desire to continue, and a drive to manifest a stronger version of themselves. That desire was the mindset necessary to create their new record entitled Spoils of Youth. The finished album is the sum of multiple factors: an unusable record made in West Hollywood, failed relationships, lost members, bad timing/worse luck, and a hard dose of reality that was found in a place where reality does not come easily.
