Atomic Mint is a modern rock trio from the San Francisco bay area. A dynamic rhythm section supports honest and intelligent lyrics, while their intensity encourages the listener to feel. The band has an appreciation for the "little things" in life and their straightforward attitude passionately shines through in all their songs.
Atomic Mint announced the release of their second full-length album, Audio Candy in early February 2003. Currently, their activities are centered around promoting the CD''s release including: print ads, reviews, radio and local TV spots around the Bay Area, and of course, many live shows.
Audio Candy is a departure from their first CD, A Better Mouse Trap. This album showcases their louder, yet refined sound. While the guitar tones are crunchier, backed by faster and heavier drums; the arrangements are simpler leaving more space for Brianna''s (singer/songwriter) remarkable voice. Her incredible vocal range and power is highlighted on the fan favorite Barracuda, (originally written and performed by Heart). About the new Atomic Mint sound, Brianna says, "the lyrics are similar in spirit, but I am pulling back vocally and that allows the songs to breathe and the melody to take over". This new body of work is a confident and mature compilation, showcasing the bands growth as songwriters.
Additionally, Audio Candy contains bonus features accessible on your PC or Mac computer. The extra materials (dubbed "extra candy") include Atomic Mint''s first music video for, "Song About You", pictures of the band, an artist biography, and a link to the official web site.
Misha, the bass guitarist, is the newest edition to Atomic Mint. His positive energy and devotion has been instrumental in the trio''s growth as artists. AMA, the percussionist, is also a professional graphic designer in his spare time. He created the bands website and the enhanced portion of Audio Candy. Brianna, the singer and guitarist, models for and collaborates with fantasy photographers. Her passion for visual artistry doesn''t end there; she is also an accomplished painter. Among all their creative interests, their universal passion is music.
Brianna, the primary songwriter, has described the inspiration, motivation and meaning behind her favorite song: Sweet Poisoned Honey- "Your emotions can make you feel irrational. For example, you know a relationship is bad for you but you can''t resist It.". All of her lyrics are unique and embody the spirit of the band.
In closing, Atomic Mint maintains a positive attitude, creative spirit and focus on their future as a successful band. They can be seen regularly performing all across the Bay Area. From San Francisco, to Santa Cruz, to the East Bay, and their home in the South Bay, Atomic Mint will be stopping by your neck of the woods soon. Be on the look out for Audio Candy in stores on Feb 21st. For more information and the latest news, visit the official Atomic Mint website at https://www.tradebit.com.
