It’s a rare thrill nowadays, when listening to the opening few bars of a track, to hear a voice that slices its way through such a riot of colour and effortlessly holds your attention. The smoky jazz vocals from PHOX’s Monica Martin provide a heavy, sultry coating to the glittering pop background that slides into clarinet interludes.

PHOX were born in Baraboo, where six unlikely musicians kindled their creative streaks, almost as a family. It’s with the bare, stripped- back harmonies and subtle melancholy of the lyrics that show PHOX have created something totally enchanting and unique, captivating from the first listen and bringing a live audience to a mesmerised standstill.

CD format includes two bonus tracks. LP is pressed on 140g coke bottle green clear vinyl
