Bio

Sitting in the comfort of 'Lovestreet Studios' in the early days of a highly anticipated 2021, Alisha Todd and Scott French decided that "music sounds better with you" - that to combine musical forces from here on could be something they wouldn't regret.

Introducing... GENIIE BOY, your new favourite Indie Pop duo. They're badass like HAIM, wrapped with a Corrine Bailey-Rae sweetness and subtle quirky overtones likened to Feist. Alisha's vocal is at the centre of it all, dancing around the dark and light topics of the human psyche, while Scott French’s multi-instrumental experiments and slyly sophisticated production style completes the GENIIE BOY sound.

As two musicians coming from very different musical backgrounds, at the heart of GENIIE BOY is the desire to find balance - in the feminine and masculine, the strange and the familiar, the tension and release - one doesn’t exist without the other.

** With thanks to the City Of Gold Coast's RADF Activate Music Grant for the support in the release of the music that is to come.

Really hearing that HAIM love on here, and like Abby said, Alisha's voice is SO charismatic and lovely. Really made me perk up and pay attention, and then the rest just fell into place perfectly.

while listening to this, I read DRH's review before the vocals hit and I was confused because that intro had me convinced I'd hit play on jazzy neo-soul and not indie pop, but alas! between Alisha's charismatic voice and the smart production, there's plenty to love about this one.
