Something a little bit chilled and introspective today, from Brighton 5-piece band Phoria.
This is their 2014 single Saving us a Riot and it’s outstanding. Heartbreakingly lovely, melodic and mournful, it’s stab-your-heart-out stuff punctuated by an understated acoustic guitar part and some gorgeous vocals. I love this kind of music at the best of times, but this is really special.
It’s actually a little bit removed from some of their other alt-rock sounds (which are also really good), but it’s one of those tracks that – for me at least – sticks in the mind the moment you hear it. I really I really, really like this.
