Midatlantic is a Boston-n-Dublin quintet delivering gorgeously amped music that’s anthemic, melodic, and driving. Formed in 2004, the band writes songs meant to ride the line between what's timeless and what's current. Their highly acclaimed 2006 debut release 'Life without Computers' unleashed nine dance-charged tracks. Their second full-length CD, 'The Longest Silence', was released in 2008 and contains songs that are at once comfortably classic and refreshingly forward thinking. Their latest EP “Isle of Shoals” points a new, grittier direction for the band while retaining their signature hooks.
Drawing on the energy, melodies, and sonic landscapes of bands like The Who, U2 and The Cure, Midatlantic dance up these influences and draw in listeners with unforgettable hooks.
