This album is gonna rock!

Thank God there's more!


Excellent single and soon-to-be album! I was a little nervous Atlas Genius would go out on too much of a limb and change up their sound, but I'm glad to hear the synth-rock sound of "Molecules" which speaks to their consistency and confidence in their identity as musicians. They were the first group that opened me up to a wide spectrum of music and made me have a profound appreciation for their ability to create unique sounding compositions. Not only that, but they are two of the most genuine guys I've had the pleasure of meeting twice thus far, and who I can really tell are incredibly passionate about what they do. Can't wait to see what big things come from the Aussies and their album!

Touch my heart


Favourite band all the time, when the first I know Atlas Genius that whas when I play FIFA

About Atlas Genius

Another example of how influential blogs can be in a band's career, sharp-edged Australian indie rockers Atlas Genius experienced a massive surge in their popularity when their song "Trojans" was featured by the site Neon Gold, resulting in offers from record labels and over 45,000 downloads in the U.S. alone before they even signed a deal. Hailing from Adelaide, South Australia, Atlas Genius were the brainchild of the Jeffery brothers -- vocalist/guitarist Keith, bassist Steven, and drummer Michael -- and their English friend, keyboardist Darren Sell. The Jefferys were raised in a musical family; their father came from an engineering background, and he and the boys' mother were both big Beatles fans and encouraged them to form a band of their own. Starting in 2009, for two years Atlas Genius built their own studio and worked as a cover band to pay the bills. After completing the studio, they began recording in earnest, with "Trojans" becoming the first song they recorded. After the song was distributed online in May 2011, the blog Neon Gold featured it, and the response from fans and the music industry generated buzz around Atlas Genius. After airplay on MTV's 120 Minutes and Sirius XM's Alt Nation channel, the band visited the U.S. in early 2012 to decide on a label. By the time Atlas Genius signed with Warner Bros., the band was a trio consisting of Keith and Michael Jeffery and Sell. The label released the group's debut EP, Through the Glass, in June of that year. The band's debut album, When It Was Now, was also recorded in their own studio and was released in early 2013. It cracked the Top 40 of the Billboard 200 and led to continued, extensive touring and multiple late-night TV appearances in the U.S. The band took a break from performing in 2014 and returned in the summer of 2015 without Sell. Recorded in Adelaide and Studio City, California, their sophomore full-length, Inanimate Objects, arrived in August 2015. ~ Heather Phares
