Nature Will Turn on Us
Like any strand of DNA, mutation is part of the course of human history. There are reactions that transform our cells, our appearance, and our souls. Mutations have yielded freaks of nature such as the elephant man and also have resulted in characteristics that have helped our species survive and thrive throughout history. One of these mutations has recently been discovered in a band called Air This Side of Caution. In parts of the EGBDF and the FACE genes, this band creates shifts in molecular and chromosomal structure. Their heritage consists of influences such as: Radiohead, Coldplay, Pink Floyd, and Jeff Buckley. With another step toward enlightenment, a new expression of mature and creative musicianship is now bursting onto the Chicago music scene. In 2001 the band emerged merely larva with soothing and careening sounds through open airwaves. Raine, J-Kid, D'liger and Lucas are all equal parts of the organism and grow in search of musical satisfaction and energetic reception. The band released their debut album, "The Unbearable Lightness of Being" in 2002. Through further stages of development they were able to deliver their EP "Things Just Fall Apart" in 2005. ATSOC is most closely associated with the Indie Rock genre. Along with other brother bands, the sound they are producing is mutating the sound of music in Chicago. Recently, they have played alongside OK GO, DJ Muggs of Cypress Hill, Galactic, and others.
