After releasing a first glimpse in the form of the ‘Atomos VII’ EP earlier this year, A Winged Victory For The Sullen finally reveal their second full-length album entitled ‘Atomos’, which besides familiar piano, string and drone sounds also sees the duo introduce flurries of electronics, harp and modular synthesisers. Wayne McGregor, founder of Random Dance Company and resident choreographer at the Royal Ballet, chose to play the album repeatedly during practices with his core group of dancers
The album was initially made for the Royal Ballet’s head choreographer, Wayne McGregor, who commissioned the work for his Random Dance company after hearing the group's self-titled debut album. Atomos gets its title from McGregor's piece of the same name. Recorded in the summer of 2013 across sessions in Brussels, Berlin and Reykjavik, it wasn’t until halfway through the process the duo realised it would also be their second studio album.

Commissioned by choreographer Wayne McGregor for his Random Dance production of the same title, Atomos supplies another hour of what the duo terms "harmonic robitussin. While this material was composed and recorded to suit a specific purpose, it resembles a proper follow-up that varies only slightly from the debut.
During the recording process they realised, that this would become their official second studio album. McGregor provided them with the inspiration to expand their sound palette into more electronic territory, whilst keeping their signature chamber sound, resulting in a very unique record. As a wise man once said, one who procrastinates their own choosing will inevitably have their choice served to them by circumstance. We had virtually no time for second guessing ourselves.
