“Back Seat,” the new video from Atlas Genius, premieres today. The song is one of three tracks on the band’s debut EP, Through The Glass, which was produced, engineered and mixed by Atlas Genius in their home studio.
The collection also includes “Trojans,”which spent four consecutive weeks at No. 1 on the listener-generated Alt-18 countdown of SiriusXM’s Alt-Nation. “Trojans” has also been added by Music Choice, KNDD/Seattle, KNRK/Portland, WWCD/Columbus, XTRA/San Diego, KITS/San Francisco and numerous other modern rock stations. An acoustic video of “Trojans” premiered on MTV2 and the home pages of MTV, MTV2, mtvU, MTV Hive and MTV Buzzworthy.
NYLON praised Atlas Genius’ “double whammy of high-flying pop melodies and instantly catchy lyrics” and Billboard tipped the band as part of “The Next Wave” of up-and-coming alternative bands. The band members are currently at work in their home studio on their full-length debut, which is due out this fall.
