the AU interview: Atlas Genius (Adelaide)

Larry Heath sits down with Adelaide duo Atlas Genius to find out what they've been up to since we last spoke at SXSW in March. Sydney! They also look ahead to the festivals Lollapalooza and Outside Lands in the USA. This was filmed while the band were back in Australia to support Stereophonics, filmed at the Oxford Art Factory before their first ever headline show in Sydney.

Live Review: Stereophonics + Atlas Genius - Enmore Theatre (18.07.13)

Lauded Welsh rockers Stereophonics rarely visit our shores, so the opportunity to see one of only three shows that the rock veterans are giving Australia is something I just couldn’t pass up. The sold out Enmore Theatre was packed out early with eager fans anxious to hear what the new material from the acclaimed Graffiti on the Train sound like live. Before this, we were treated to an excellent support set from Adelaide’s Atlas Genius.

Photo Gallery and Live Review: Atlas Genius + Glass Towers + Gang Of Youths - Oxford Art Factory (17.07.13)

As most of Sydney watched the Origin, I headed along to Adelaide band Atlas Genius' first ever Sydney show. What's taken them so long? Well, you might remember them as "the talk of SXSW" and it seems that our music loving friends in the USA have grabbed a hold of them before they were given the love they deserved back home.

Album Review: Atlas Genius- When It Was Now (2013 LP)

Atlas genius hail from Adelaide in South Australia and feature Keith Jeffrey on vocals and guitar, his brother Michael Jeffrey on drums and Darren Sell on keyboards. Based on the strength of their first single “Trojans” in 2011 the band developed a loyal following, and the hype generated put them on everyone’s must see list, propelling them as far as the USA and UK. They even played at this year’s SXSW and are on the bill for Lollapalooza.
