Listen to Wild Decay, from Phosphene’s new record!

Listen to Wild Decay, from Phosphene’s new record!

Well today we will start of with some grammar in use, as the band name triggered my optic neuritis, phosphene comes from the Greek word phos (light) and phainein (to show), and are induced by movement or sound, it actually is a phenomenon characterized by experience of seeing light without actually entering the eye.

So that sums it up, fluorescent dosage of indie pop probes into our ears with “Wild Decay” taken from Phosphene’s new album “Breaker” out in April 29th. It’s an excavation of violet squalls, a comeback from the deterioration of civilization that breathes in one’s self-esteem. A lesson to learn, when you defend the love that comes out from you. It’s an audacious track with an independent politeness, sparks full of fluidity strike the guitar in a cathartic way, and Rachael’s beautiful voice fills up the nature of the journey with ethereality.

Phosphene (Rachael Frankel, Matt Hemmerich and Kevin Kaw) are a California-bred, Oakland based dream rock band fueled by iced coffee and sugary things. Band forming events recurred in 2008 and 2013 and from then they have refined and evolved their sonic palette to reflect their diverse influences. The band is an amalgam of rock, dream pop and shoe gaze with Rachel’s bright melodies bursting through.
