Phox: “Kingfisher”

“Lovely.” “A new favorite.” “Wow!” These were just a few of the comments after Phox’s performance with us at the Four Seasons last week during SXSW. The Wisconsin-based band was largely unknown heading into the festival, with just a few EPs to their name. But their dynamic live show–featuring Monica Martin’s sublime, airy vocals alongside the band’s dreamy folk/electronic mix–is not to be missed. The group already has performances at Lollapalooza and iTunes Fest in London under its collective belt, and they’re currently working hard on their debut album at April Base, the studio owned and operated by Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon. Here’s hoping “Kingfisher” winds up on the finished record. The song weaves a potent spell, ebbing and flowing between group harmonies and Martin’s ready-for-the-spotlight voice.
