About Atlas Genius
Atlas Genius is one of the biggest up-and-coming bands out there. Hailing from Adelaide, Australia, the band is composed of the Jeffery brothers, vocalist/guitarist Keith and drummer Michael.
Following the success of its debut single, "Trojans," the band signed to Warner Bros. Records and released its
full-length album, When It Was Now, in February 2013. The group left home in the summer of 2012 to spend 18 consecutive months touring North America.
"We'd never been to America before," says Keith Jeffery. "We flew in at night and saw this sea of lights, and it really became apparent to us how massive the U.S. is. It was pretty intimidating.
"It's still surreal," Keith added about all that's happened over the past 18 months. "I think when we were very young, we had hopes that something like this might happen one day. But then you grow up a bit and it seems less and less likely. So when we put 'Trojans' out, we figured it would be a success if maybe a hundred people heard it. We don't want to force our music onto anyone. Our goal is to write songs that we love, and we hope they connect with other people too."
