Anonymous Choir performs in The Current studios

Anonymous Choir

Dark Dark Dark's Nona Marie started her Anonymous Choir back in 2011, featuring a rotating cast of female musicians and close friends, some of which had never performed in a band before. The result is a gorgeous, stirring and stripped-down project focused solely on covers of their favorite musicians.

Rising stars Atlas Genius perform in The Current studio

Atlas Genius

Adelaide, Australia's Atlas Genius got signed to Warner Brothers in the wake of the success of their sleek, melodic indie-rock tune "Trojans," released as a single back in 2011. The quartet gave us a taste of their evolving sound on last summer's Through the Glass EP, and just a couple of weeks ago they released their debut LP When It Was Now.
