This is the second article where we can show some love for Atlas Genius, the threesome from Australia. A group you can always count on to create and deliver songs with lyrics you can sink in to and dance around to. I realized I had noted the original song multiple times, then began hunting for the remix. Most good songs have a remix.
This particular remix came from Lenno. He is 18 and clearly knows his way around a good revamp. I always think of what I was like at 18 when I read about these young guns. They’re producing, touring the world, having an understanding and ability in music which leaves onlookers aghast. They are the doers and believers. It was not until my 25 year, I really felt I had the confidence of these guys where you look at something you are interested in or good at and say “I am going to do that. I can do that.”
I was feeling more like the lyrics to this song. Soaking in my first heartbreak and living on some pipe dreams. Take it in.
“Take it off
Take it in
Take off all the thoughts of what we’ve been
Take a look
Take a picture you could never recreate
Write a song
make a note
for the lump that sits inside your throat
Change the locks, change the scene
Change it all but can’t change what we’ve been.”
