"Buoyant African and Caribbean grooves behind sometimes moody reflections."-New York Times
"They've got the kind of soulful, broad sound that makes you imagine the horizon's just a little bigger than it is" -New York Magazine
"Not only does this septet have abundant energy and a batch of strong songs, but it's also got Monica Martin, as charismatic a lead singer as I've seen in a while." -NPR
"Understated passion and subtle power" -Salon (The One Band You Need To Know at SXSW)
PHOX are delighted to share their charming new video for "Slow Motion," which has premiered on Entertainment Weekly. Directed by PHOX's very own Zach Johnston (guitar / banjo), the video was shot in Nashville across from The Stone Fox, a popular venue & restaurant co-owned by William Tyler (Silver Jews, Lambchop). The video is five minutes of pure, unadulterated, technicolor joy: Whimsical patterns, dance routines, bubbles, confetti, and mind boggling slow-mo/fast-mo camera tricks.
The Madison via Baraboo, WI sextet, who recently announced their signing to Partisan Records, will release their self-titled debut on June 24th, and will embark on a massive US headlining tour that same day, making stops in various major markets, as well as festivals including Newport Folk Fest and Shaky Knees. Produced by Brian Joseph at April Base Studio in Eau Claire, WI and mixed by Michael Brauer at Electric Lady Studios, the album is a school of simple folk-pop songs swimming amidst a chaotic eddy of rock, psychedelia, and soul.
