"Atmosphere" is a song by English post-punk band Joy Division. It was originally released in March 1980 by the Sordide Sentimental label as the "Licht und Blindheit" (German for "Light and Blindness") package, a France-only limited edition single featuring the track "Dead Souls" as the B-side. Following Ian Curtis's death two months later, it was re-released as a 12" single by Factory Records with “She’s Lost Control” at the B-side.

The version is a 2020 reissue by Warner on 180g heavyweight vinyl.


With "Atmosphere" Joy Division heralded, for better or for worse, a whole decade of 80s Gothic posturing and indie miserablism. Hook's nagging bassline, the galloping drums, droning electronica and icey shards of synth all lift Curtis's doom-mongering vocals perfectly. With this you can almost believe the hype.
