PHOX Announces NA Tour including Canadian Dates

Phox - Photo credit Jade EhlersPHOX has just announced an extensive North American tour including dates in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon and Winnipeg. The Madison via Baraboo, Wi natives released their self-titled debut last year via Dine Alone Records in Canada to much critical acclaim. For the band’s full itinerary, see below.

The breathy-yet-powerful intensity of lead-singer Monica Martin’s voice sits somewhere between the evocative agelessness of Christine McVie or Nina Simone with more modern echoes of Chairlift’s Caroline Polacheck. Beneath this, an elegant Lee Hazlewood-meets-Regina Spector arrangement and compressed drums that would sit on the edge of a St Vincent record. PHOX straddle the normally shaky boundary between sounding modern and classic and are a must-see live.

In addition to accolades from NPR, New York Magazine, and Salon, Jon Pareles of the New York Times praised the band’s songs and live performance, “[PHOX]…gives listeners something to return to after the party; the upbeat music holds thoughtful lyrics. PHOX writes full-fledged songs.”
