Atlas Genius talks new album, early influences and current tour

WLNZ reporter Sarah Spohn spoke over the phone with Keith from Aussie alternative indie rock band Atlas Genius.

Brothers Michael, Keith and Steven Jeffrey of Adelaide, South Australia formed Atlas Genius in 2009 and exploded onto the indie scene with their hit single, “Trojans” in 2011.

The song was discovered and soon spread like wildfire on music blogs and alternative satellite radio stations, without the band even marketing the single.

In the following interview, Keith spoke about what music inspired him growing up, some of his favorite story-telling albums and what he misses while on tour.

You can catch Atlas Genius (now Michael and Keith with touring backing musicians) Thursday, Sept. 24 in Ferndale, MI at the Magic Bag. Tickets are available at
