GENIIE BOY Share Their Emphatic New Single ‘Bruises’


“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” 

– Pip Rasmussen, triple j

“…harmony-laden, danceable indie-pop framed within Alisha’s warm and distinctly Antipodean vocal stylings”
– Blank GC


Gold Coast two-piece outfit, GENIIE BOY share their second single Bruises; a fun, pop-rock track about love and finding your tribe. 

GENIIE BOY is a fusion of talent from singer-songwriter Alisha Todd and producer, multi-instrumentalist, Scott French. Much like all GENIIE BOY magic, the track was produced at Lovestreet Studios, which is owned by Scott. Their track was written in a stream of consciousness after reflecting on the pair’s sentiment toward their platonic and romantic relationships: “Bruises is a love song for people who have been a little slow in finding the human they could never get sick of, and also a song for people who don’t fit into the ‘norm’ of societal structure. It’s a bit cute, a bit rock-y, a bit silly. It’s pretty much Alisha’s self-reflection on meeting Scott, their relationship and the reality of their surrounding social groups”, explains Alisha.

Compared to the likes of HAIM and and Corrinne Bailey Rae, this single is the follow up to the debut release Fool’s Play. The single received positive reception from tastemakers such a Blank GCAAA Backstage, ABC Gold Coasttriple j Unearthed, and has even scored them a slot at Jungle Love Festival 2021, where they will make their first appearance as a band.

With a video clip to follow and an EP on the way, don’t wait any longer to jump on the GENIIE BOY train.
