The album features 10 remixes from the Aussie rock band’s debut album When It Was Now, including the new exclusive tracks “Electric (Vertigo Remix)” and “Centered On You (Viceroy Remix).” The band is now coming to the end of an 18-month tour which included a stop at Los Angeles’ KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas on Dec. 8 that included Arcade Fire, Lorde and many other artists.
Alternative rock band Atlas Genius formed in 2009 in Adelaide, South Australia. This year has been a whirlwind for the Jeffery brothers, the backbone of the band. Keith plays lead guitar and does lead vocals while Michael is on drums. When It Was Now, their debut album, came out in February of this year and ranked No. 34 on the Billboard 200 list. The band has been recognized by publications such as Rolling Stone and Entertainment Weekly. The band has also released a special sharable, downloadable version of “Symptoms (Wild Cub Remix).” Listen to it below.
