[PROPULSIVE POP ROCK] Australia’s Atlas Genius makes the sort of music that goes well on iPod workout mixes, and you can be damn sure the band would have made its way onto a few cassette mixtapes back when those were in vogue. That’s not to say the band makes pumped-up rock tracks or that everything is super lovey-dovey, either. There is just something magical about the ebullient tracks. The sun-drenched guitars and warm melodies certainly have a calming effect, but at the same time, the swelling vocals and ethereal atmospherics propel you into something epic. It’s a tricky balancing act that’s catchy as hell. Not bad for a band that only wrote its first original song about 18 months ago.
