Bio

From the primordial slime of the independent music scene in the muddy gloom of a long Melbourne winter, the Phosphenes have emerged with their unique pop nā€™ roll sound. Delving shallowly into the world of relationships, longings, and cultural imperialism, armed with poignant and quirky humour and dripping in vocal harmonies, the Phosphenes create imperfect four-minute pop songs from a standard dysfunctional rock line-up with added melodica for your convenience. Describing your life or the one you almost had, there's no teen angst here, only the slow ache caused by trying to gnaw away at the limb stuck in the trap of the world.

This does work! Good guitar work, drums and nice touch of sax (could be more). Vocal training will really help (not that it is bad mind you).
