Mike Cykoski, the man behind the arty, literate indie-pop project A Is for Atom, has had a distinguished career in the music business, but a few transformative events drastically altered his path. Now, he welcomes a new era experimenting with pop dance, electronic compositions inspired by classic rock, and an electronic crooner track.
Mike has always been a fearless composer. He studied formally at NYU, earning a master’s degree in Music Technology, as well as at Juilliard, experimental music center Harvest Works, and DJ school Dubspot.
His last EP, Song for You, garnered prime visibility in the press and onstage. Aside from regular shows in and shows in New York City, he has performed nationally and internationally in Ireland, Mexico City, Toronto, for NXNE and Canadian Music Week, and twice at SXSW.
Mike is releasing a new EP in September which is a collaboration with up-and-coming producer Carey Clayton (Emily Thomas, Ian Abel, Mary Akpa, Stephanie Rivers--Guitar Player-Great Good Fine Ok and David Wax Museum).
A is for Atom - No Signal
The first single is “No Signal” a song with a driving and hypnotic beat and ferocious vocal duet featuring New York City singer Clara Lofaro. It’s all about the disconnect between intention and emotion in the modern world.
