Atmosphere performing during the Wherever Tour at the Stubb's Waller Creek Amphitheater in Austin, Texas on January 31, 2020, with Sean Daley (Slug), Anthony Davis (Ant), and Plain Ole Bill.
The world is a vastly different place than it was just a few years ago, and Atmosphere’s music has begun to reflect the ways in which the world, and their place in it, has changed. The idyllic domesticity of previous records has morphed into anxiety over keeping loved ones safe during turbulent times on their most recent works. Instead of bragging about backstage misadventures, it’s become more about grappling with mortality.

The easygoing collaboration between Ant and Slug has started to feel more like the life-or-death intimacy of two men trapped together on a lifeboat. At times it’s heavy, but it’s far from grim. There are still jokes being cracked, joints getting smoked, a little trash talking here and there—after all, it’s still hip-hop—and Atmosphere’s never sounded better.
