Description

A voice appears out of a sound: a golden shape, a texture, a mixture of sunlight and sculpture. Music as spectral as this makes you lose yourself in the right way; deep in sound and light. Imagine the music of Sigur Ros, or James Blake, or Aphex Twin, but travelling somewhere else instead. As you do, pay attention as your eyes and ears adjust: open up, come alive. Over the past few years, Phoria have become known for their colourful, visually evocative soundscapes with the release of two EP's: 2013's 'Bloodworks' and 2014's 'Display'. Top 5's on Hype Machine, support from BBC Radio 1 and 6 Music followed - along with millions of Spotify streams. Now, they're proud to announce their highly anticipated debut album 'Volition', out 3rd June on X Novo Records. Phoria are headed up by the master of electronics and composition Trewin Howard, a deeply sensitive character in tune with his surroundings, empowered with synaesthesia and once afflicted with a mysterious - still undiagnosed - illness that left his senses frayed and mind on edge. When this illness ebbed, it left behind an even more heightened auditory perception, which he channels into the band's music. He is joined by two friends he has known all his life (guitarist Jeb Hardwick, piano/synth player Ed Sanderson) and two others (drummer Seryn Burden and bass/synth player Tim Douglas), whom he feels he has known forever. Phoria start to make sense with this strong backbone and incredible bond in place. 'Volition' is bursting with vibrant sounds throughout, from the electronic washes of opener 'Melatonin', to the organic clicks and claps of 'Emanate', to the epic string section finale on 'Yourself Still', which brings a colourful parade to end the record. "A deeply felt and achingly human composition" - TLOBF "A lovely indie pop track that's almost impossible to not tap your foot to" - THE 405 "Inventive electronic flourishes and vocals that craft the most enchanting of spells" - GOLD FLAKE PAINT "The feeling of time passed is something that transcends through their music" - NOISEY "Like letting off a smoke bomb in a gorgeous landscape" - DIY - TLOBF "A lovely indie pop track that's almost impossible to not tap your foot to" - THE 405 "Inventive electronic flourishes and vocals that craft the most enchanting of spells" - GOLD FLAKE PAINT "The feeling of time passed is something that transcends through their music" - NOISEY "Like letting off a smoke bomb in a gorgeous landscape" - DIY
