Biography

In a technological age where anyone can be in a band and record a CD (and virtually everyone does), Leda Atomica holds tightly to the roots of music and creates organic Rock and Roll...like it should be.

How do you describe a sound that is unique? Many different elements come to mind, but it is still something all it's own...that is what Leda Atomica is all about. They can be as strong and dynamic as Jefferson Airplane, yet sultry and hypnotic as The Pretenders...WITH vocals to match. Their sound is as full-bodied as The Deftones but can also pull off eloquent space Rock like Silversun Pickups. Unique...like the Dali painting they were named after.

Currently, they are focused on recording their 4th CD since forming as a band in late 2005. Through the years, their music has been in demand for numerous Short and Feature Films, TV series and Webisodes. Most recently, in multiple episodes of a new sporting event on the Versus Channel called, 3 Gun Nation, and in a Feature Film, B4, due out early 2011 - in which they also represent themselves.

Leda Atomica is not a stranger to the main stage either. As a band and as individuals, they have opened for or played with DeeDee Ramone, Linkin Park, Men Without Hats, Dilana, and Our Lady Peace just to name a few. They Rock the small stage just as well playing top clubs throughout the U.S. like The Roxy, Knitting Factory, Key Club, and anything in-between. 2009 ended with a performance at the Austin City Limits kick-off party as well as being named one of the Top 100 Unsigned Bands.

Consisting of original members, Angela Ueber (vox & guitar) and Marika Tjelios (bass), Leda picked up a force on lead guitar in 2006 with Janel Jones. Finally in Summer of 2009, they found the last piece of their perfect puzzle with drummer, Stephen Riddle.

No gimmicks, no frills, just solid Rock and Roll.

Lyrics

Without You

Written By: Angie Ueber (Leda Atomica)

Look how everything goes so well
I bet they couldn't even tell
You were here
One down and so many more to go
I break down something I do so well Thank you dear

How do we get ourselves out of this
How do we stumble within an ounce
Of normalcy
One chance to finally get it right
A placed bet you know I was all in
Over my head

CHORUS:
Sometimes I see right through myself
But if I fool me enough I'll live
Without You
I might get along fine this time
But who knows what will happen tomorrow
Without You

Look how everything goes so well
I bet you couldn't even tell
You were here
One down and so many more to go
I break down something I do so well Oh well

CHORUS
SOLO
CHORUS

Heartbeat & The Basset Hound

Written By: Angie Ueber (Leda Atomica)

Where did you come from my little backwards girl
Do you like it in your little backwards world
I got my reasons why I wanna show my guns
I got my reasons why I wanna turn around and run

This is my fucking town

You keep coming at me again and again and again
Don't you know when to give up
I got my reasons why I don't believe a word it says
I got my reasons why I wanna tell it like it is

CHORUS:
This is my fucking town, my fucking town, my fucking town, my fucking town

BRIDGE:
Do you wanna stay right where you are
In your world full of hate
I can judge a cover just as good as you
Just don't forget to take a look inside

CHORUS
BRIDGE:
Tell me again how you're gonna get through all this
And how many times have you been saved

CHORUS
Leave me alone, leave me alone, leave me alone, won't you leave me alone, leave me alone, leave me alone, won't you please just leave me alone

Phenomenon

Written By: Angie Ueber (Leda Atomica)

I wanna break you
Into a million pieces if I could
And I cannot take you
I hate you more than I really should

And I'm counting my convictions one by one
And hope that someday soon I will be gone

I'm moving on
To this sense of false security
I wonder how
It will be it will be will it be

CHORUS:
Know that I will gradually become
A sordid kind of new phenomenon
When I count to 3 you'll know I've won
I'm your new kind of phenomenon

BRIDGE:
Where did it go wrong
I got one foot in the deep end
And all I see is you
If I stay on the same path
I could justify my actions
All I bleed is you

I wonder how
It will be it will be will it be

CHORUS x 2
Phenomenon phenomenon
Phenomenon phenomenon
Phenomenon phenomenon
Phenomenon phenomenon

CHORUS:
Know that I will gradually become
A sordid kind of new phenomenon
When I count to 3 you'll know I've won
I'm your new kind of phenomenon
I'm your new kind of phenomenon
I'm your new phenomenon

Q-Cumber

Written By: Angie Ueber (Leda Atomica)

Is there really anything else I can say
To make you realize that the mistakes I've made
Are inadvertent and I don't know why
You insist on acting just like a child
Is there really anything else I can say

CHORUS:
I gotta keep pushing on somehow
Without the one thing that brought me down
I try to do everything just right everyday

There you go again
Wasting more of my time
There you go again
With all the fake tears
How many times do I have to change when I know that you're just gonna stay the same
It was all about you always all about you

CHORUS
BRIDGE:
How many times do think we can do this
I know you don't really love me
And I've been ok with that
Time after time I keep hoping you bail on me
I haven't been that lucky yet
And that's not gonna change

CHORUS x 2
