Atlas Genius is an unsigned new band from Adelaide, Australia. “Trojans” is their first song, and what a first it is. Featuring a big clean sound, one wouldn’t be at fault for thinking of Phoenix. The guitar even sounds like its tuned straight from Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix at some parts. With a big bouncy bass-groove, this song will be stuck in your head all day, and it won’t be a bad thing. One of the lyrics is “Your trojans in my head.” It’s the truth.
It’s available to purchase on iTunes. Doubt these guys will remain unsigned for long. The band did a acoustic performance of the song for Matt Pinfield’s MTV2 show, 120 Minutes with Matt Pinfield. It’s a refreshing performance. Hit the jump for that.
