Brighton based ambient electronic five piece Phoria returns with a beautiful acoustic rendition of their song Melatonin, one of so many stand out tracks from their criminally underrated debut album Volition. The already introspective song takes on a new level of deep contemplation on Phoria’s spectral hovering recording. This “unplugged” version is a soft, gentle kiss, from which emits exquisite and moving sorrow. Despite my love of Volition, I’ve yet to see Phoria live, a sure to be transcendental experience I’ve had at the top of my to do list for a long time. Luckily, the British band will soon be making their way out to Austin for SXSW. I look forward to finally catching them at Fancy PR, The Burning Ear, and Vinyl Moon’s Double Dutch showcase on March 18th. Find out more about that stacked event, here. You can also stream Melatonin (Unplugged) via Soundcloud below. Debut album Volition is out on iTunes, here.

Ah, Phoria, how you know your way around my heart, and now you do so with an entire album, too. The Brighton based ambient electronic five piece just released their eagerly awaited debut album Volition, one which I’ve yet to manage to obtain a physical copy of. But thankfully, I’ve been able to listen to it digitally, otherwise my heart would shatter in sorrow. From Volition comes yet another stirring beauty named Loss, a ravishing dream folk and experimental electronic beauty that leaves me crumlped up in a heap on the floor, lost in its mournful emotion and grand evocative expanse. Loss is a prime example of exactly how heart rending and soul moving Phoria can be. There are no words to describe the feelings they can ignite. I’m hardly able to breath for six and a half minutes. Phoria’s debut album Volition can be listened to in full on Soundcloud, but don’t forget to purchase your own copy from iTunes, too.

I’m helpless when it comes to Phoria, and I don’t believe I’ve missed sharing a single new tune from the Brighton based ambient electronic five piece since I first encountered their music over two years ago. Last Friday, Phoria released their highly anticipated debut album, from which we now visit somber stirring Mass. My heart shudders under the weight of the gauzy humming, haunting atmospheric gem. Debut album Volition is out now on X Novo. Grab your copy of the colossal release from iTunes. It’s also available on Amazon, but it’s currently only an import album here in US. I’m really itching to obtain a physical copy of this tour de force album. Help.

For the next four minutes, twenty eight seconds, your senses are going to be overloaded and inebriated to the max by Phoria. The band from the UK has taken us to some spectacular emotive panoramas with their music for over a year now, and they seem ever more brilliant with each subsequent new song. Everything Beta is their latest, a folktronica opus full of textured complexity, which they’ve delivered with esoteric vocals. Phoria kindles endless spine tingles with boundless atmospheric beauty. There’s no avoiding comparing Everything Beta to the venerated music of Radiohead, but with the gossamer deftness and diaphanous metaphysical quality of acts like RY X and The Acid. Everything Beta will be on Phoria’s eagerly anticipated debut album Volition, out June 3rd on X Novo.

Today’s my first day back at sharing new music with you here on I Heart Moosiq since last week’s whirlwind of a trip to Austin for SXSW, and it’s serendipitous that I’m welcomed back by brand new Phoria. The Brighton five piece has been one of my favorite emerging outfits for over a year now, and they never fail to deliver on every new song they present to us. Latest single Evolve comes alongside the announcement of a debut album, Volition, out June 3rd on X Novo.  Evolve only serves to magnify my eager excitement for the full length, its breathtaking Sigur Ros depth and Radiohead like abstract complexity overwhelming my senses with stirring, haunting beauty.

I always find myself eagerly awaiting new Phoria, even right after the UK band drops a gorgeous tune. Their dreamy folk music is just too moving and beautiful. The band follows up on last single, Melatonin, with a new hymn entitled Saving Us A Riot. The single comes from their upcoming debut album Voltron, to be released June 3rd via X Novo. That full length has quickly become one of my most anticipated albums of the summer, particularly after losing myself in the bucolic mist of Saving Us A Riot, its wispy vocals and tender touch sending sublime tingles across my skin. Trewin Howard, the band’s producer and vocalist, explains that Saving Us A Riot is “about some things that never happened. I think I was laying to rest an imagined adventure and letting someone know that it meant a lot to me.” Phoria’s next live date is next Wednesday, February 24th at The Pickle Factory in London. Maybe someday, I’ll be whisked away by their live set here in California. One can dream.

It’s been a long time since we’ve heard from UK band Phoria. In fact, one of the last things I wrote about the guys late last year was that they were a favorite band of 2014. You can imagine how delighted I was to find out that they had new material to fill that Phoria hole in our hearts since. New single Melatonin is a first taste from Phoria’s debut album, and it’s unimaginably magnificent. The single is named after the hormone that regulates our circadian rhythms by anticipating the daily onset of darkness (and which people take to fight insomnia). Melatonin encapsulates that moment when shadows elongate under a dramatically setting sun and a great anticipation of what’s to come permeates the air. Shapes seem malleable, patterns are shifting, change is converging. Melatonin is darkly beautiful and flawlessly entrancing, reminding me, as Phoria often does, of sensational music by the likes of Thom Yorke, Asgeir, and The Acid. Melatonin is out on X Novo. Phoria’s debut album will be out in 2016.

One of my favorite new UK bands of 2014 is undoubtedly Phoria, with their cathartic, atmospheric music off brilliant debut EP Display. Their ebbing and swelling dream folk meets brooding alternative is cinematic and haunting, even reminding me at times of Radiohead and Asgeir. Phoria also recorded a track that was originally meant for the Display EP, but was never released. Now we get to listen to the Brighton five piece’s tender and enchanting Saving Us A Riot. Try not to cry from its melancholic beauty…

There’s no doubt that UK five piece Phoria has taken my ears, and so many others’ ears, by storm, with their atmospheric, moving music, full of endless cathartic ebbs,swells, and magical moments. They released their Display EP today on X Novo, which boasts amazing songs like Emanate, Effortobreathe, and Once Again, all songs I gleefully shared with you on IHM in the past weeks. A fresh new track we haven’t heard yet on the EP is this progressive piece of bewitching music, titled Atomic, which is also accompanied by some visuals, which you can find below. There’s some shades of Radiohead here that I hadn’t even noticed previously in Phoria. This one’s far more pensive and dark, but still so gorgeously cinematic and again, such a brilliantly crafted song. Phoria’s music is of the kind that stays with you for long after the last notes fade away.
