Though not as well-known as, say, the San Francisco garage-rock scene or the East Bay punk scene, the South Bay alt-pop scene is as massive as either and has produced no shortage of quality music. Picture Atlantic’s first (and, to date, only) full-length album, Kleos, established the Santa Clara group as the massive South Bay music scene’s ambassador to the arena. Kleos’ rich fusion of Hellenic bombast and eclectic but accessible music remains the scene’s high point.
Fan Angel de Sousa says: "Kleos is amazing because Picture Atlantic is amazing. Picture Atlantic is amazing because they possess the talent to be creative and not snobby."
