Hi there,

We are Genuis. It sounds like Henri with a french accent.

We are two young 20 year olds named Lien Do (Elfboi) and Anthony Leedom (&thony) that met in the historic KDVS 90.3fm. We started this project a little over a year ago after Lien was invited to play a show at Sophia's Thai Kitchen. 

Since then, we have spent 1000000000 hours in the basement of Freeborn Hall and our friend Joyce's house (you can ask our friends) to finally come out with our first album called .//WAV. It has been such an amazing process in challenging ourselves in what we think music could potentially be. 

As a matter of fact we are still working on the minute details of the tracks to ensure maximum experiences for you all. 

Our main goal as a band/project/collaboration is to further what we personally think music is with audio and visual and we hope that this album will be able to do that. 

But to be real, seriously our friends and family have been there for us at every show allowing us to have some pretty cool opportunities like play at a ton of festivals, play with Giraffage and Au Revoir Simone, collaborate in film with amazing directors, have awesome footage and pictures, and all the other things we have been able to do. 

So really this album becoming a physical entity is the next step to really pushing forth into the future and honoring all the support and experiences we got along the way. 

Who knows, this could open doors to tour, or even playing in a different country.  

Therefore, thank you thank you thank you and we hope to share our music  to whoever is willing to listen.

If we pass 2014$ (fingers crossed) we are hoping to use the funds to tour and pay all the people who helped us with videos and art. So you aren't just supporting us but all of our friends that let this happen.
