Wisconsin band PHOX focuses on nap-popBy Amy Marino | 08/28/2014 1:42am
Martin’s self-coined sound description of “nap-pop” could not be more spot on.
With an EP titled “Confetti” released as an extended music video in April 2013 and an initial strong fan base made up of family and friends from Wisconsin, PHOX gained recognition quickly thanks to bubblegum pop orchestral/folk songs like “Slow Motion” and their undeniable chemistry as a band.
To their listeners’ delight, PHOX has more than satisfied the hunger their fans have been experiencing since “Confetti” with last month’s release of their self-titled, ?full-length debut album.
Ever since its June release, PHOX by PHOX has been praised by countless music media outlets, including NPR and PASTE Magazine. What appears to draw listeners in most is the band’s spontaneous musicianship. All music fans want something to hold onto, and PHOX’s music has the endearing and raw aspects of a long-time friendship.
