Brooklyn’s Phony Ppl Sing Of Heartbreak In New Track, “Something About Your Love” – New Album, Mō’zā-ik Due 10/19
Brooklyn-based quintet Phony Ppl have shared their funky new song, “Something About Your Love”, taken from their forthcoming album, mō’zā-ik, due October 19.
Blending soul, funk, R&B and more, Phony Ppl continue to flex their musical prowess by refusing to be limited to just one genre on the track which was self-produced and mixed by GRAMMY Award winner Qmillion. Complex premiered the song, who noted, “Although this track details the experience of heartache and pondering the right time to leave a toxic situation, the band creates a balance with the instrumentation that mirrors the good moments we tend to focus on when ignoring all the red flags.”
Explaining the track, frontman Elbee Thrie noted, “It’s a sonG about stayinG in a relationship you know is poisonous. We recorded it at a Universal Audio session in Santa Cruz, CA then finished back in NYC at ‘The Cabin’ at The Manhattan Center”
The song is the third taste of their forthcoming album, mō’zā-ik, Their 2015 debut album, Yesterday’s Tomorrow earned organic praise from The New York Times, who praised the group’s “forward thinking” abilities and Rolling Stone, who called the album “sharply cut funk.” Phony Ppl also earned cosigns from heavyweights Childish Gambino and Tyler The Creator, who named “End of the Night” one of his favorite tracks that year.
Phony Ppl have kept busy since Yesterday’s Tomorrow, performing with Erykah Badu and The Roots, along with opening for 2017 breakout star Kali Uchis on her nationwide tour. Individually, the members have also shared their talents on projects from Snake Hips, Princess Nokia, Mac Miller and Odd Future.
All five members of Phony Ppl come from a long line of musical families which helped cultivate their own love for the artform. Each member attended music classes and schools across the country, including Juilliard and the School of Rock, before finding each other in 2009. Those early after-school jam sessions evolved into the band’s current lineup, featuring Elbee Thrie on vocals, Elijah Rawk on lead guitar, Matt “Maffyuu” Byas on drums, Aja Grant on keys and Bari Bass on bass guitar.
“Something About Your Love” is available via 300 Entertainment.
