Atlas Genius – When It Was Now

When It Was Now, debut record by Aussie indie rock group Atlas Genius, is the epitome of the genre. Promoted by the single “Trojans” released in 2013, I was lucky enough to stumble upon this song in the depths of Spotify and was interested enough to listen to the whole record. Lucky for me, again, that I actually really liked it; besides a few redundant moments and my inability to understand the lyrics, there were a few really solid tracks on here. The cohesiveness of the record is immaculate yet every song has a particular feel to it which makes it stand out from the rest. It got mixed reviews from critics but in my personal opinion, this project is timeless and contains some of the best tunes to come from indie rock. Even so many years later I continue to revisit it, expecting it to feel boring or lose its touch. Somehow, that never happens. So with that being said, here are my picks for the most memorable moments from When It Was Now.


“Back Seat”

“Centered On You”

“Don’t Make A Scene
