It feels like it was but yesterday that I last caught Atlas Genius while they were on tour. The Australian indie rockers had just released their sophomore album Inanimate Objects days ahead of their stop at the Independent in San Francisco on a Sunday night, and the sold out crowd was all hyped up on the band’s new tunes and old sing-a-long classics like Trojans and If So. From those exultant memories, we fast forward ourselves to this week for Atlas Genius’ first new music in two years. The duo, now based out of LA, returns to regale us with bittersweetly heartrending 63 Days after having spent their summer splitting their time in the studio and on the road. They’ll be embarking on a fresh new North American tour presented by Alt Nation next week, and they’ll be slinging this hot new synthrock track during their travels. Atlas Genius will be joined by Magic Giant, flor, and Half The Animal on the Alt Nation tour. For more information, visit their website, here. 63 Days is available from iTunes, here.

Atlas Genius’ wonderful sophomore album Inanimate Objects struck me as more electronic leaning than their debut album, and my favorite single off the release illustrated that quite clearly. Now, Molecules morphs into an even more electrifying dance song, thanks to New York production act Penguin Prison, who gives it a slick edit that bounces entrancingly. The remix palpitates and pulses with beats like those of a heart of darkness. It’s a wired jam that jolts and jars pleasurably.

Australian synthrockers Atlas Genius dropped a killer sophomore album recently, and undoubtedly one of the best, if not the catchiest tunes off of Inanimate Objects is, of course, Molecules. Molecules, and most of the other tunes off Inanimate Objects, venture far more into electronic territory than the band’s prior material. It made me wonder about remixes of the tracks. Sure enough, Finnish producer Lenno’s dance remix of Molecules is pure gratifying rapture. The nu-disco tinged house edit literally bursts at the seams with bright radiance and sugary strength. These molecules are dancing up a storm!

I said this earlier on Twitter, but I’m saying it again here, right now. Atlas Genius is just killing it with their new tunes, which means the Australian synthrockers’ sophomore album is going to be such sweet music. They follow up on Stockholm and Molecules with another wall of electrifying sound with A Perfect End. This one might be their most gratifying and gloriously robust one yet. Bouncy synths, growling guitars, and rip roaring energy gives the impression that they held nothing back on this one. Inanimate Objects will be out August 28th via Warner Brothers. Guess who just eagerly pre-ordered this morning?

Following on the heels of terrific Molecules several weeks ago comes Atlas Genius’ latest taste off their forthcoming sophomore album, which is quickly shaping up to be an excellent second release from the Australian synthrockers. New song Stockholm, which premiered on Zane Lowe’s new radio show on Beats 1, is a spirited, rambunctious electro-rock anthem. This one’s even more gloriously infectious and powerfully roaring than Molecules, perhaps the hardest hitting tune I recall hearing from the band. New album Inanimate Objects will be out on August 28th via Warner.

Australian synth rockers Atlas Genius gave us a spectacular debut album in 2013, off which came one of that year’s most infectious anthems ever, Trojans, which is still such an irresistible, beloved gem to this day. Come this fall, Atlas Genius will be releasing an eagerly awaited sophomore album, Inanimate Objects. The fellas revealed a pulsing, driving treat off that record today. Molecules is another massive indie anthem. Contagious spirit, an exploding chorus, and a balanced blend of alt rock and dance ready electronica makes this lead single a fine addition to Atlas Genius’ repertoire.

Australian indie rock band Atlas Genius’ debut album When It Was Now was one infectious and fun album last year. It garnered a huge following for the unforgettable single Trojans, and it spawned a ton of fantastic remixes. The trio decided to release a remix album titled So Electric: When It Was Now (The Remixes), available on iTunes. It’s a compilation of many remixes we’ve listened to together on I Heart Moosiq. Listen to a new one above, Centred On You remixed by San Francisco producer Viceroy. It’s a high energy, disco and electro house flavored dance version.

In a rush to head outta here, since I have yet another show to hit up tonight (yes, it’s a busy week of endless good live music), but I must get around to sharing this remix that I first listened to yesterday. Buzzing synthpop act St. Lucia remixed Australia’s Atlas Genius! Here’s there spectacular rendition of Atlas Genius’ Centred On You. The dramatic remix which builds up to frenzied heights has grown on me with each listen. It’s far moodier and darker, which, as always, is a plus in my books.
