Title - 'Atoms'
Artist - Bonefish
For those not in the know, the bonefish (Albula vulpes) is the type species of the bonefish family (Albulidae) , the only family in order Albuliformes ... wait, hang on just one dang minute, this is a CD review, not the bloody fishing channel!
OK, so with that now said, this Bonefish is a rock band from Stockholm, Sweden and was formed in 2010 by singer/songwriter Bie Karlsson whom have a long career with chart selling Swedish’ bands T-Shirts and Docenterna.
On their second full length album, Atoms, Bonefish is taking their '70s and '80s influences well into the 21st century in Max Lorentz’ fine and innovative production.
Sure, some of their blues flavors have been toned down, but the foundation of these 11 brand new compositions are still pure Americana, that's for sure. Clearly more polished, sculptured with art rock and Brit rock influences within their cores, each track is vibrant and as warranted to the scene as the next, of that have no worries.

The mid-tempo, twisting and turning sounds of the title track open the album and that leads seamlessly to the more pop lock, late '80s fun of 'Another Day', with the '60s vibe of 'Fallen in Love' following along close behind. One of my own personal favorites is the storytelling of 'Old Town Fisherman Blues', which is backed by both the jangly guitars of 'Potential Loss of Faith' and the darkly upbeat 'Sister.'
The tempo reduces for the gentle hipsway of 'Kissing In The Rain' which is then backed by the mid-'90s feel of 'I See Your Hear' and then the inner turmoil of where we are in life within 'Hey Hi Ho.' This quite stunning new album then rounds out with the slow guitar blues ballad of 'Salt And Crome' and then a song they obviously had so much fun recording, 'Crappy Eyes.'
