What came first — the music, the band or the dream studio? If you ask Atlas Genius, the Aussie act made up of brothers Michael and Keith Jeffery, the answer is the dream studio.

The story behind how the band came to be sounds like a happy accident: Three years before the brothers played their first live show under the name Atlas Genius, they were busy building a studio where they could write and record music. Following the completion of their dream studio, the pair released its debut single “Trojans” in May 2011, followed by a video premiere for the well-received track in January 2012.

“Trojans” found its way on the Triple J Unearthed and bloomed into something the brothers never anticipated. “Checking the band’s email account for the first time in over a month, the band found that dozens of record labels, publishers, lawyers, booking agents and management companies from all over the world had contacted them.”

Atlas Genius, whose first trip to America was in 2012 to shop for record labels, is now signed to Warner Bros. Records. When It Was Now debuted on the label in February 2013 and the band has wasted no time to make its tour rounds with numerous acts.

The duo will perform at Marquee Theatre in Tempe on Saturday, Sept. 21 with support from Family of the Year and The Happy Hollows, and The Spec is giving one reader free tickets to the event.
