Vancouver's Goodwood Atoms blend indie folk, indie pop and electronic music into delicate, ethereal, and enticing soundscapes that seduce the listener. Influenced by Radiohead and Alt-J, the band formed back in 2014 and by 2015 had won FACTOR’s Juried Sound Recording program, which is funding the work on Goodwood Atoms' debut LP that is scheduled for release in November. Today, we're sharing the group's new single "Into the Bay".

Goodwood Atoms says, "'Into the Bay’ is a song about boundaries. We create boundaries to make sense of the world -- boundaries between truth and fallacy, between good and evil, between who we think we are and who we think other people are. But at the same time we seem to be constantly in search of ways to be freed from the constraints of these boundaries, if sometimes only for a night. Into the bay is about the dichotomy between these two states of mind, or these two competing impulses."
