When: Wed., April 5, 7 p.m. 2017
Australian alternative pop duo Atlas Genius got their start as a pub cover band in Adelaide. Weekly performances allowed them to save money for the home studio that would eventually produce their certified gold single, “Trojans.” Self-described as “indietronic,” their dance-rock energy fuses modern alternative sensibilities with stone-cold bass, crackling synths and heavy club beats. Their sophomore album, Inanimate Objects, reveals a softer side on tracks such as “Friends With Enemies.” They’re currently in the midst of a massive, 47-date tour of North America. Check out Atlas Genius on Wednesday, April 5, at the Higher Ground Ballroom in South Burlington. Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness headlines, and Night Riots add support.
