New Video/Single from The Creachies "Get Atomic"

The Baltimore, Maryland based outfit The Creachies mix their visual art style with new wave pop and electro beats on their latest single/video "Get Atomic"

The story behind the song from the band themselves:
Earlier this year we received an email from our friends at Atomic Books in Baltimore letting us know how much they enjoyed our latest single Chopping Mall. They went on to ask if we would be interested in creating an original song for them. Well Atomic Books is our favorite place in Baltimore so we responded with “Yes! We’ll make you two songs! And a video! What else do you want??” Everyone was in agreement that these should not be jingles or advertisements, but fully realized songs, able to be enjoyed remote from their connection to Atomic Books. Put simply, the song Get Atomic is about being fed up with the life you’re being pushed into, and finding that thing, or place, or person that allows you to escape, open your eyes, make your own choices, become a superhero, fly to other planets, think critically, get out of bed, and many other wild things you hadn’t believed possible. It might be found in a book, in a song, in a painting, in a friend, it could be hiding anywhere and it’s amazing when you find it. With the help of our incredibly talented animating friend Grace Boyle, we created a video for it in our basement with a budget of 6 dollars for an extra large tub of mayonnaise. We took visual cues from movies like Barbarella and Flash Gordon, retro-futuristic art, Jim Henson, vintage animation, and more, running it all through heavy filters of fun and camp.
