Atlas Sound is the name of a musical solo project of Bradford James Cox, the lead singer of Atlanta four-piece Deerhunter. Cox was born in Athens, Georgia in 1982 and suffers from Marfan Syndrome. The singer has released an album entitled Let the Blind Lead Those Who Can See but Cannot Feel on indie-label Kranky to favorable reviews. In explaining his reasoning for a solo project, Cox has stated, "It's just that I have ideas that I can't make work with a five piece rock band...there's kind of this palette of sounds that I use that I don't necessarily get to use with Deerhunter". Cox has noted his heroes to be Ricky Wilson from The B-52's and Laura Carter from Athens punk band the Bar-B-Q Killers.
