Wisconsin band PHOX have today announced that they will be visiting the UK in the coming weeks to play a series of live shows.

The band have recently signed to Partisan Records, after a bidding war for their signatures. Hot on the news of the tour also come news of a UK debut single ‘Slow Motion‘, which has been given a 9th June release (followed by an LP release in September). The single can be heard below and is a glorious mix of Monica Martin’s vocals and mouth-watering strings. The track offers a heady mix of genres. Folk, indie and a Caribbean sounding bass that ensures the band have a little something more in their bag than their contemporaries.  It’s simple un-complicated music that will grace radio play-lists the breadth of the country this summer.
