oh what? maybe a new song in the works??? as we are also so close to printing our record and release a mixtape and more stuff forever stuff. and maybe more shows and stuff.
We got this rad review of our newest track from Dots and Dashes from the UK. We didn’t even send anything, just happened! Makes us feel so loved :)
This is what they said:
"When we fell for incomparable Québec duo GENUIS around the turn of the year, it’s safe to say we fell hard. It’s a fall we’ve hardly gotten over in fact, &thony and Elfboi repeating that particularly impressive trick all over again with the altogether more immersive Peachies. Indeed, this extremely succulent, newly polished edit proves the pair’s most delectable yet, a wistful vocal articulating unintelligible, yet still dulcet somethings floating supply atop a nitty, intricate backdrop comprising nuanced bleeps, reverberant rhythmic bashes and slight, celestial synth lines. All of which ensures it would seem as though GENUIS are maturing rather nicely…"

We have a meeting with Pop Gang label tommorrow. We are playing in treez. This is a remix from Jevin: https://soundcloud.com/jevinalmazan-1

It actually happened!! with three days left to go!! We are celebrating in our respective locations (davis/Oahu) and with the biggest smiles and hearts. Thank you all so much. We feel so so supported and will promise you… Anything extra of the 2014 will go towards tour!
Mark my words…
We will succeed no matter what. We will do justice to your support and love our music as much as we can and work as hard as we can.
So thank you. thank you. thanks.
We only have less than a week left! Anything you donate will help us! And to give back here is a rough draft of our new song peachies.
We hope to be doing this for years to come and will remember everyone who have ever helped us.
We are so grateful
HEY! its been a week! and we are 25% to our goal. if its like this every week we have a chance to make it! So please help us out. It really is one of our biggest dreams. and we are really serious about 2014 being the year. I promise you.
anyways this is our video for //strawberri shot, edited and directed by Jared Law!
2 more coming each week.
I dare you to do this: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1837974919/making-of-a-genuis-album-wav
Comprising full-length releases from the likes of BRAIDS, DIANA, Pick a Piper, Sean Nicholas Savage etcetera, few could argue against Canada’s having had a healthy, and musically prosperous 2013. And .//WAV from grammatically problematic Québec duo GENUIS could likely file alongside the outstanding albums of those aforementioned. For across nine restive tracks, &thony (or Anthony Michael Leedom) and Elfboi (born Lien Bao Do) piece together one of the more inventive records we’ve heard in recent months.
Perhaps inevitably therefore, it’s not without its ecstatic highs (and murky lows), of which the pulsating, if again typographically tricky Flnnl is one. For belying its slightly exhibitionistic production values resides Do’s candid admission, “I crave you.” GENUIS may not be the first to have concealed a song of such intense yearning in a relatively Hi-NRG electronic track, although few have previously done so this inGENUOISly.
However, it’s the immersive murmuring of the record’s extensive centrepiece, Hwaiian Wdding, that’ll have you helplessly devoting yourself to one of underground music’s unplumbed, if already rarefied triumphs. For amidst what sounds the jingling of shrapnel and shuffling acoustic guitar twangs dwells a work of subtlety and spectacularity alike, Do this time daydreaming of monosaccharides, “red shift dives” and Mid-Atlantic blues to make for a work that’s inviting as an infinity pool. And if this aqueous ceremony were to go on that long, few would likely kvetch much, if at all…
We just got the sweetest review from Dot and Dashes in the UK. Like the review is so spot on it makes us wanna cry.
Here is the full thing: http://dotsanddashes.co.uk/blog/hwaiian-wdding-genuis/
Its happening. We are taking one step closer to our dream by raising money via Kickstarter to produce PHYSICAL 7 INCHES of our album .//WAV.
This is a video comprising clips from our music videos to show you whats been going on.
its be one heck of a ride with everyone and we are excited for 2014. We wanted to release one music video each week of the kickstarter to show our thanks and to do anything possible to show how much we appreciate you all.
We usually aren’t ones to ask people to publicize for us but if you think this is cool and worthwhile, it would be nice if you did tell others.
don’t feel pressured to.
until next time, see you space cowboy
so pretty much we are in post production for 3 different music videos and all the videographers and directors are amazing : Jonathan Gleit, Emily Wang, Jared Law.
We are so blessed.
