If folk-tinged, indie electro-pop is your bag—or if you just enjoy melodramatic performances by should-be pop stars of the moment—then you'll want to catch the rambunctious and talented Aussie outfit Altas Genius in action. Helmed by brothers Keith and Michael Jeffery, the (I'd say underrated) band's songs are catchy as hell and its performances are known to be full of surprises and gusto, kinetic affairs that carry its songs to new proportions, in all their relatable and anthemic-yet- saccharine glory. Atlas Genius, formed in 2009, has released two albums: 2013's When It Was Now and 2015's Inanimate Objects, both of which were fairly successful in terms of college/alternative radio airplay and generating a buzz. That buzz, as we await the band's third album, brings them (and perhaps you too) to the Tiger this week.
