About the song and music video:
“Atlantic” furthers Ignorance’s sophisticated turn in sound, bursting with urgent percussion, flutters of woodwind and strings, and Lindeman’s cool voice. The song finds the narrator prone on a cliff, watching a sunset as frightening as it is beautiful, “blood red floods the Atlantic.” In the accompanying video which visualizes the song’s quiet terror, we once again see Lindeman adorned in her mirrored suit, though this time, she is front and center surrounded by her full band performing in the dimly lit woods. She aimed to capture the intensity of the band in a traditional music video performance video, but in such a way that it subverted the form in mysterious ways.

“Trying to capture something of the slipping feeling I think we all feel, the feeling of dread, even in beautiful moments, even when you’re a little drunk on a sea cliff watching the sun go down while seabirds fly around you; that slipping feeling is still there, that feeling of dread, of knowing that everything you see is in peril,” says Lindeman. “I feel like I spend half my life working on trying to stay positive. My whole generation does. But if you spend any time at all reading about the climate situation circa now, positivity and lightness are not fully available to you anymore; you have to find new ways to exist and to see, even just to watch the sunset. I tried to make the band just go crazy on this one, and they did. This is one where the music really makes me see the place in my mind; the flute and the guitar chasing each other, wheeling around like birds, the drums cliff like in their straightness; I love the band on this one.
