Atsuko Chiba

POST-PROG | POST-ROCK


IMG_0831 2.jpg

Montreal’s Atsuko Chiba fearlessly cross genre-defining borders with a  unique blend of progressive, psychedelic, post-rock, funk, and krautrock.

The band’s live performances uniquely combine their sound-based creative practices and live-triggered projections to create immersive sensorial environments. Over the years, they have shared the stage with Big Business, And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead, 65daysofstatic, Caspian, Duchess Says, Tricot, Indian Handcrafts, If These Trees Could Talk, The Alarmist, Arms and Sleepers and Little Tybee, among others.

The inimitable psychedelic-prog rockers are back with Trace—their second full-length album. The eight-song collection, mastered by Chris Common (Chelsea Wolfe, Mastodon, Isis), encapsulates relentless riffs and dexterously performed rhythms that feed off herds of intertwining melodies and otherworldly soundscapes.

Press

Montreal’s Atsuko Chiba started as they meant to go on, with an assured blast of noise and a strong, rhythmic backbone. Their bass-heavy, industrial-flecked groove hit hard in the theatre (…) Their mostly instrumental jams tend to favour the slow and long over the frenetic, but they occasionally got math-y, too, making for good, captivating psych.
— EXCLAIM!
Atsuko Chiba is an unclassifiable, hyperactive, and overall weird band that plays experimental music that draws influences from psychedelic, post-rock, progressive rock, and probably a bunch more stuff with one or more prefixes.
— ARTIC DRONES
Bathed in psychedelic projections, the troupe were at the centre of an immersive audio-visual experience.
— Exclaim!
Getting right down to the meat and marrow. They’ll infect you. They’ll steal you away. They’ll tap right into your core and begin pumping in their whirling, ticking, peaking, grinding sounds.
