Entrancing pop from the United States...

As the oft-observed cliche holds: writing about music is like dancing about architecture.

So why not let the musicians introduce themselves? Here's PHOX: "PHOX is a bunch of friends from the Midwestern circus hamlet Baraboo, Wisc., a place where kids often drink poisoned groundwater and become endowed mutants. They make music that straddles Feist and Monty Python."

Or in other words: they're a Mid-West band who sound like they come from the South, a modern outfit who make songs Fleetwood Mac would cry for.

Debut single 'Slow Motion' is due to be released on June 9th, and it's a pop sensation in waiting. A heady mix of snappy songwriting and a funky strut, the track comes equipped with an instantly infectious video.

Shot by Zach Johnston, the clip features a vast cast with the action evolving in witty tandem to the music itself.

Check it out below.

30 London Electrowerkz

3 Liverpool East Village Arts Club, Sound City
4 Glasgow Stag & Dagger Festival
5 Manchester The Castle (Free Entry)
