If So

Song: If So
Artist: Atlas Genius
Album: When it Was Now

The new Phoenix may ultimately disappoint with it's "experimental" leaning, but thankfully... there is a winning substitute; Australia's Atlas Genius.

From Adelaide, South Australia, this four-piece gained initial exposure from their single "Trojans" released in May of 2011.  It was added to MTV2's "120 Minutes" early last year and added to Sirius XM's Alt Nation station, raising the bands profile further.  They signed to Warner Brothers Records and released a debut E.P., "Through the Glass" which included "Trojans," "Back Seat," and "Symptoms" last Summer.

All of the songs on the E.P. made it to their debut album "When it Was Now," which just came out last month.  I'm loving the album and especially new single "If So" and album-starter "Electric."

You'll hear elements of Phoenix, Shy Child, Cut Copy, Empire of the Sun, etc.  Good band, check them out.
