The last time we wrote about Team Genius, we lauded this local pop supergroup for their ability to pull us out of our mid-winter slump. Turns out this is a band for all seasons, as it’s hot as you-know-what outside and Team Genius is nothing short of a breath of fresh air. If this track “Love and Love Songs” off their forthcoming EP is any indication of how great Team Genius’ new stuff is, then we’re all in for a treat. It’s Team Genius at their finest, saccharine yet commanding, as if they’ve ripped the pages out of the pop handbook and make confetti out of its remains.
If you live in New York and you like to have fun, you should probably check out the Team Genius record release show on Friday August 19th at Mercury Lounge with our good pals Quiet Loudly. We’ll be there and you should be too! If not be sure to grab their latest EP, Pop Songs, out August 23rd via all major digital outlets and the Team Genius website.
