Band to Watch: Genuis

Band crush. Genuis is a San Francisco based experimental electronic duo that makes incredibly classy darkwave outer space tracks that holds your attention for every second their music is emitting from your speakers. These young musicians are sonically versatile and have an understanding of sound and layering that many musicians don't possess. Genuis' music has an intense amout of depth to it, but the music doesn't overwhelm you with layers that are dissonant, misplaced or out of key. Also, there can be one moment where you'll hear an intense intergalactic song and the next you'll find yourself listening to a minimal acoustic anti folk track. Nonetheless, by the time you get through their album, whether your ear catches a lofi or heavily produced song won't matter. 

&thony (Anthony Michael Leedom) and Elfboi (Lien Bao Do) make a great duo, and Bao Do's voice is incredibly charming and brings a lot of enchantment to the songs. We're totally into it. The songs have layered and atmospheric personality and you should get into Genuis for sure. -je
