Premiere: Atlas Genius – Symptoms

We’re psyched to premiere this anthemic new jam from Australia’s Atlas Genius, “Symptoms,” because we have a feeling this song will be everywhere before you can pencil these guys into a high-ranking slot on your list of favorite “atlas” bands. There’s a lot of things to love here – rapid-fire, motorik drums that sound borrowed from the driving beats you’d hear on ‘90s college rock radio, bubbly guitars intertwining like vines over sharp synth spikes and that groove, and the track’s emotional core, in the form of frontman Keith Jeffrey’s Britpop-inflected vocals. The end product is immediately accessible and endlessly repeatable, but not something you could just draw out of the alt-rock radio bag. The band’s debut EP, Through the Glass, drops June 12.
