phoria – “everything beta”

brighton-based quintet phoria have been stockpiling a collection of densely-textured, gorgeous electronica for nearly three years now.  that diligence will pay off in the form of volition, their debut album, out june 3rd via x novo records.  trewin howard’s vocals are as lush as ever on “everything beta,” equally at ease with the rich synth-bass figure that swirls in the bowels of the mix as they are with the gentle piano off-beats that sit closer to the top.  the air feels chilly, with wisps of fog trailing off of each percussive hit, but phoria retains a comforting familiarity, one of a long-lost treasure only recently reclaimed.  take a listen to “everything beta” below.
