Listen: PHOX’s new song “1936”

on June 05, 2014, 1:40pm

Wisconsin six-piece PHOX marry genteel folk and sunny melodies for some of the most charming indie pop this side of the Mississippi. Since self-releasing their Confetti EP last summer, the band’s signed with Partisan Records and put the finishing touches on their self-titled debut full-length, which is due out later this month. In anticipation, they’ve shared a new song called “1936”.

Gorgeous yet so understated, the track starts with tender guitar plucks à la Sufjan Stevens before settling into a lovely, bubbly groove. It doesn’t hurt that frontman Monica Martin’s got a voice like a feather. Listen in below.

PHOX the album arrives on June 24th via Partisan. Below, check out the official tracklist, the band’s upcoming tour dates, and a recent “Take Away Show” they did for La Blogothèque.
