Phoria: Once Again
Brighton 5-piece, Phoria, are something of a dream discovery. Their sound draws on the artistic genius of Sigur Rós, Radiohead, Rhye and Local Natives. Phoria produce tracks which sound somewhat monumental and hit to the core of your soul.
They are heavy, deep and layered with dense and elongated soundscapes. Receiving positive press amongst the Line Of Best Fit, This Is Fake DIY and music bloggers alike with the release of their EP, 'Bloodworks,' Phoria are quickly making an impressive name for themselves.
Members are: Trewin Howard (vocals/guitar), Ed Sanderson (keyboard/violin/vocals), Jeb Hardwick (guitar/visuals), Tim Douglas(guitar) & Seryn Burden(drums). The majority of the members learned how to play music in primary school and continued to play together for 15 years. In 2011, Tim joined the band and the formation of Phoria was complete.
Last year saw performances with Little Dragon and Active Child, as well as developing an audio-visual show for the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad.
