NEWS// Phoria: Dolls Spinning Wide (Demo) MP3

Think you've heard this new track before? Well, you haven't. Phoria is an upcoming band from Brighton who just take a very heavy Radiohead influence, which you really do notice. Does this hinder the music though? No, I don't reckon it does. That particular inspiration is tinged by others, like Mogwai and Sigur Ros, and their sounds seep into Phoria's work, making for a very interesting listen. The guitars are bleak and mournful, and the vocals match that with semi-depressing lyricism. All this misery however, is carried along by some really fantastic instrumentation that amplifies the emotion to an epic level. Organs, violins and creeping percussion phase in and out, searching for answers and putting forward a lot of questions. All in all, just love it.
