Battles - "Atlas"

A link to this video by New York supergroup, Battles, appeared in my inbox earlier tonight from Warp Records. A far cry from the halycon days of experimental electronica (Aphex Twin, Boards of Canada, Autechre etc), Warp now boasts a diverse roster that includes Battles, Maximo Park, Gravenhurst and blog-darlings Grizzly Bear.

Battles feature ex-members of Don Caballero, Helmet and Tomahawk. They are (in)famous for their intense live shows and expert percussive elements. New album "Mirrored" is due on May 14th and will be backed with an extensive tour.

"Atlas", the first single, seems like a different direction for the band it's glam, psychedleic, rock and electro all rolled into one. I can safely say I have never heard anyhthihg like this before
