“Like an invitation you weren’t expecting to get, Atlas Genius knocks on your door and creeps into your peripheries in stealth mode,” said Neon Gold shortly after the then-unsigned band put “Trojans” on SoundCloud last year, offering it for sale via TuneCore on iTunes, Amazon and Spotify. “Fair warning: ‘Trojans’ will invade your head, all dressed up in a clever disguise of earnest vocals riding a hooky riff.”

The Adelaide, Australia-based indie band has since signed with Warner Bros. Records, which will release its debut EP, Through The Glass, on June 12. The three-song collection will include Atlas Genius’ breakout hit “Trojans,” which had sold more than 45,000 downloads in the U.S. alone before the band was even signed. The band members are currently at work in their home studio on their full-length debut, which is due out this fall. U.S. tour dates will be announced soon.
