Hailing from Baraboo, WI, the six best friends who make up PHOX happen to be blessed with madness, illusions of grandeur, and the inability to do the same thing twice. They also play music. Describing themselves as every variation of “indie pop” under the sun, PHOX represents the result of six creative individuals coming together to fulfill a musical niche. Fueled by lead singer Monica Martin’s rich voice, the band’s sound reflects their nature as an ensemble: pulling in different directions, emulating varying emotions, but coming together for one refined result. It’s music that manages to hit both ends of the spectrum skillfully: quirky yet graceful, poppy yet expertly- crafted, catchy yet grand and elaborate, and overall just plain contagious. With two EPs, slots at major festivals (iTunes Festival in London, Lollapalooza), and a national tour under their belt, PHOX are currently in the studio working on a full-length release, out early summer 2014.
