TRACK OF THE DAY: THE PHOENIX FOUNDATION – ‘SUNBED’ (video)

ALBUM REVIEW: THE PHOENIX FOUNDATION - GIVE UP YOUR DREAMS 2

The Phoenix Foundation have unveiled their new video for “Sunbed,” a standout track from new album Give Up Your Dreams (out now on Memphis Industries). Wonderland Magazine, who premiered the Puck Murphy-directed visuals, commented that “the group’s gloriously absurd world of technicolour pop is one you’ll want to submerge yourself in time and again.”

“”Sunbed” contains so few overdubs,” say the band. “It’s a very full arrangement, but it really is mostly just the band playing it like a band. It’s about the human obsession with UV light and what a powerful and destructive thing that can be. From turning orange with a fake tan, to melting on a tanning bed, to galaxies passing through-other stars colliding-cosmic radiation and destruction on a macro level. It’s also quite a catchy tune.”

The band’s full UK and European tour begins tonight in Leeds, and also takes in a headline show at London’s Oslo venue on Monday (2nd November). Full dates as follows…
