Listen: PHOX’s charming new song “Slow Motion”

on April 08, 2014, 6:28pm

Folk-pop outfit PHOX are gearing up to drop their self-titled debut on June 24th through Partisan Records. In anticipation, the Midwestern six-piece have unveiled a new single called “Slow Motion”.

The track — which originally surfaced in longer form on the band’s self-released Confetti “video EP” last summer — is delightful and charming, a colorful piece of pop that’s backed by hearty piano chords and gently plucked banjo. Even without the sunny instrumentation, “Slow Motion” soars effortlessly to stand tall amongst other similar Lumineers-esque stylings thanks to the wide-eyed allure and vocal finesse of frontwoman Monica Martin. Listen in below.

01. Calico Man
