About The Phoenix Foundation
New Zealand’s finest purveyors of psychedelic pop, The Phoenix Foundation, are set to return in 2013 with an astonishing new double album entitled Fandango, and an accompanying string of live dates.
The band, who had a critical and commercial hit with 2011’s album Buffalo (and which preceded them playing Glastonbury and performing on Later with Jools Holland), have returned with an expansive, bold and colourful statement on Fandango. The album, an uncompromising 80 minutes, sees the band explore a range of moods and musical threads from the glowering motorik opener of ‘Black Mould’, the soulful yacht rock of ‘Sideways Glance’ and end-of-the-party psych-folk of ‘Modern Rock’.
The Wellington based six piece’s first cut from the album is ‘The Captain’, a 3 minute ballad of melancholic melodic joy featuring the vocal talents of Lukas Buda, one of the band’s two front men.
