Kazoo! #269: Phèdre / The Magic – Jan 18th @ eBar
Melted-pop duo Phèdre make music for escaping. The visually evocative soundscapes emerging on their previous releases take form like a great comic; a concise narrative, bright colors, and psychedelic textures. If comic books had strobe lights Phedre‘s certainly would. As for what they take from the real world, Phèdre‘s music borrows from hip-hop, psych and high-bpm electronica to make music digestible to internet-induced-ADD-types and also those who can sit through a heavily conceptual full-length.
Blue-eyed synth soul with an ’80s bent, The Magic transcend time and place on Night Falling, their long-awaited follow-up to the 2012 debut, Ragged Gold. The duo of Geordie and Evan Gordon spent four years crafting the record, during time off as touring members of Islands, creating a sparse, haunting new sound focused on Geordie’s croon and falsetto, with sonic nods to Sade, Hall & Oates, Haim and Blood Orange. Now joined by the impassioned vocals of Jessy Bell Smith and Tim Clarke, The Magic has never sounded better live.
