whenitwasnow.jpg When It Was Now, the full-length debut from Atlas Genius, is out today! The band wrote, recorded and produced the album at a studio they built in their hometown of Adelaide, Australia. They will perform their hit single, “Trojans,” on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” tonight and play a sold-out record release show at the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, NY tomorrow, February 20th. The record release show will be broadcast by SiriusXM Alt Nation on Friday evening and then throughout the weekend.

Their song “Symptoms” is currently the iTunes Single of the Week. New single “If So,” praised by Rolling Stone for its “dream-like guitar licks, shifty hi-hats and a meaty bass backbone,” is already gaining momentum at radio and online, where it has over 75,000 Sound Cloud streams in 2 weeks.

Last week, the band introduced new songs off of When It Was Now…

“Electric” via Neon Gold

“Centred On You” via Indie Shuffle

Taking its inspiration from the album artwork, the trailer for When It Was Now was shot underwater. It was directed by Claire Marie Vogel, who lensed the “Trojans” and “Symptoms” videos. When It Was Now is available now at iTunes.

The track listing for When It Was Now is as follows:

1. Electric
2. If So
3. Back Seat
4. Trojans
5. Through The Glass
6. On A Day
7. Centred On You
8. Don’t Make A Scene
9. All These Girls
10. When It Was Now
11. Symptoms
