Phoria combine lush instrumentation, innovative structures and heartfelt climaxes to deliver an intense and often uplifting experience. With comparisons being made to Radiohead and Sigur Rós, it’s easy to see why this Brighton band is gaining so much attention.

Phoria have recently been seen supporting Gorillaz collaborators Little Dragon, Britpop legends Dodgy, and post-rock heavyweights Her Name Is Calla. They have since developed a sensational audio-visual show that they will be touring in 2011.

When playing at Lewisham’s Dirty South, the band caught the attention of producer Dan Lucas. He felt their material and performance was so strong that he offered his time for free, enabling the band to record their debut EP at Anchor Baby studios in the Kent countryside.

In August they released 'Yourself Still’ as a pay-what-you-want download available at phoria.bandcamp.com. They are currently recording their second EP 'Bloodworks', to be released in summer 2011.
