PHOX - 2014




One of the most prominently unifying fixtures of PHOX comes from deep in the soul of frontwoman Monica Martin. Her smoky voice serves as both the constant throughout PHOX and the motion that pushes songs in new directions. The almost a capella opener “Calico Man” focuses the attention on her, while on tracks like lead single “1936,” her layered harmonies weave into the greater instrumental collage. Although some tracks may blend together on initial listen, PHOX ultimately serves as a colorful debut from a promising young band.
