A song featuring handclaps, whistles and a ukulele always had a better than average chance of reaching For Folk’s Sake’s attention.
Phox’s ‘Slow Motion’ has a depth and variety that makes it something rather special, throwing in drum solos, oboes and a smorgasboard of other lovely sounds, all spearheaded by Monica Martin’s breathy, hot water bottle of a voice. This track has had a million + listens on Spotify. That many streamers can’t be wrong.
Phox’s eponymous debut album came out in the UK on Monday.
