Since gliding onto the scene at the start of last year in a swirl of electro-pop grooves and sumptuous sonic tales, Alisha Todd and Scott French of GENIIE BOY released a handful of widely-received singles and their debut EP ‘If You Have Something To Say’.
Inspired by a podcast discussing the idea of an elevator to the sky that would act as a conduit for interstellar travel as a way forward for human evolution, ‘Elevator To The Sky’ completely embraces the weird and the wonderful, brought further into being with an appropriately wacky music video accompaniment.
The beauty of “Elevator to the Sky”, the latest single from Australia’s GENIIE BOY, is that it knows exactly what its prime directive is, and that is to spread as much fun around as possible. It’s evident in every fuzzed-out synth line, mischievous vocal inflection, and the steadily building harmonic layering throughout that GENIIE BOY enjoys what they do and are ready to bring a little bit of good ol’ summertime dance vibes back to the world. And if psychedelic interstellar cocktail parties are your bag, make sure to check out the accompanying video.
Like all GENIIE BOY things, this video is very DIY. We made the Futuristic Space People costumes (lots of paper mache, putty and trips to Spotlight), directed, filmed part of and edited the clip. We advocate DIY!”
