But there’s more to it than the melancholic ode to love of life that meets the eye in the first place. Plot the storyline of the recordings and it will look like a long and winding road crossing a huge mountain range.
The twins and songwriters Matthias and Michael grow up surrounded by classical music. In the nineties, at the peak of britpop, they start developing their own compositional style.
Michael, lead singer and head of the band, describes his music and 'The Atlas Idea':

Matthias adds: “We tell about the fluent beauty of shared thoughts and sing about the process of a featherweight idea becoming something heavily important.”

“We believe that there's a connection that binds us together in a constant state of flux. These songs are variations on our hopes and fears, our frustration and dreams.”<br>
