Pretend I'm a Genius
is a Carrboro-based alternative rock band delivering
highly-listenable music to whomever wishes to receive it.
We are four musical creators joined in an ever-evolving quest for alternative rock greatness (or at least fun). With Carrboro, NC as our base of musical operation, we've been entertaining crowds in bars, clubs and festivals since 2015. Fans say our band’s original songs offer a “refreshing twist on a solid 80’s rock foundation” with “well-paired vocals and meaningful lyrics.” Our album Float on Black (recorded at The Rubber Room) and recent EP Once Upon a Time (recorded at Nightsound Studios) have been well-received and our quest continues. Are we accidental geniuses or just pretending? Listen and decide for yourself.
