The Cold Atomic is a pseudonym for the solo work of Kyle Caldwell, previous frontman of the now-defunct rock band Animal Farm. With The Cold Atomic, Caldwell establishes his maturity as a songwriter and showcases his eclectic musical ideas, taking full control of the process by writing, recording, and producing solely by himself.
Currently The Cold Atomic is ambitiously recording and releasing five EPs consecutively, each covering a different sub-genre of rock — from stripped-down acoustic to glam-inspired funk. The fourth and latest, Purple Hyperbole, is a poppy, hook-laden collection heavily inspired by the songwriting and production of early British Invasion albums.
Caldwell currently resides in Hamilton, Ontario. He has shared the stage with Ill Scarlett, Rides Again, and Gloryhound, as well as performed with local bands Wentworth and Jade Greenaway, and has been featured in several publications including The Spec, Urbanicity, and VIEW magazine. In 2019, The Cold Atomic was selected as one of the finalists in the Jim Beam National Talent Search contest as part of Canadian Music Week.
