Wisconsin six-piece PHOX join us next Friday for a live Free at Noon concert. The indie pop / folk outfit formed in 2011 before releasing a debut EP called Confetti in 2013, followed by their self-titled LP last summer.
PHOX's star has risen quickly over the last few years, having already landed opening slots on tour with Blitzen Trapper, The Lumineers and The Head and The Heart. In March of last year the band recorded a World Cafe session while at SXSW in Austin and performed during the KUTX showcase.
Lauded for frontwoman Monica Martin's sweetly soulful voice and the layered instrumentals of her bandmates, PHOX presents a beautifully subdued yet fun spin on quirky indie pop that can be intimate in small settings (like at Boot & Saddle last July) or command the crowd in larger venues (like at the Tower Theater last December). XPN welcomes PHOX to Union Transfer for their largest Philly headlining gig on Friday, February 13th following the Free at Noon. Catch the free preview concert by RSVPing here or tuning in at 88.5 FM or XPN.org.
