Video Premiere: Atlas Genius - "Symptoms"
Atlas Genius’ first single, “Trojans,” has already been hailed as “irresistible pop” and the “next rock anthem.” On another one of Australian singer Keith Jeffrey’s songs, “Symptoms” his crooning vocals impressively rest over him playing an acoustic guitar. He performed this song as part of a session recorded and filmed at Crown City Studios in Pasadena, Calif. Both “Trojans” and “Symptoms” are tracks off the band’s Through the Glass EP, a hint at what’s in store for their forthcoming debut LP.
In addition to the video, Atlas Genius plans to embark on his very first U.S. tour beginning in August. The two-month run features a few gigs with Silversun Pickups and Animal Kingdom.
