First Listen: Phosphene – Ride

a1904463092_10There’s both rhythm and silence to a cresting wave, suspended bliss … freedom … nothing. “Ride,” the latest single from Oakland trio Phosphene, builds to a similar state without ever crashing, a musical swell followed by flat calm.

Having released their self-titled LP in 2014, Phosphene — Rachel Frankel (vocals/guitar), Matt Hemmerich (drums) and Kevin Kaw (bass/guitar) — will follow up with Breaker, a six-song EP, on 29 April.

Embrace the zen wash of “Ride” by streaming the song below and purchase the single via Bandcamp.
