Sunday Downloads: "Trojans" by Atlas Genius

So many good songs, so little time. Over the holidays I have downloaded a plethora of awesome songs.  ("A plethora, El Guapo?") I've been neglectful of my Sunday Downloads lately, sorry guys. BUT...*redemption* I've got lots of syrupy goodness to fill a month a Sundays with so stay tuned.

Release Date: August 3, 2012
And for today's song, what do you know...the band I'm featuring is from Australia!  I swear I don't plan this.  I find music that's amazing and then I research the band, and every time I'm shocked when I discover they are from Australia. Obviously Australians know what the heck their doing when it comes to music.  This particular song "Trojans," is a fun, upbeat catchy tune.

The song was released originally in 2011 but made it's way to US August 2012.  I can't get enough of Atlas Genius.  To me they are going to be the next rising indie band like Walk the Moon (Ohio band with the hit "Anna Sun".)  I believe I read recently that they are touring with Silversun Pickups...#%@&!!!!  What a concert that would be!

Today I'm going to feature two versions of the song.  Like I said, one is upbeat and fun, the other is acoustic and gives it a totally different feel.  I've downloaded both because they are so distinct in their own right.  Enjoy!




Lyrics "Trojans" by Atlas Genius:

Take it off
Take it in
Take off all the thoughts of what we've been
Take a look
Hesitate
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

Your trojan’s in my head

It's ok if it's gone
The thoughts that you had that it was the one
And oh what is left?
For all those times is that what you get?
Oh regardless
The walls get painted anyway
Oh you're guarding
The gates, but it all got away

Your trojan's in my head

Take it off
Take it in
Take off all the thoughts of what we've been
Take a look
Hesitate
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
