The first single from the new album, a double-A-side of No Through Road and America, is now available. It’s the perfect opener for Finally, a friendly shore and a great introduction to The Phosphenes’ sound. Listen to or buy it right here, or check it out on iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, or wherever else you get music.
Or, you know, just check out the music video we made for No Through Road:

Halflight (2013) is a journey from the watershed to the sunshine via holey pockets, television, an interstellar void and the Flying Wallendas. Along the way the guitary pop of this reticent quartet was delicately sprinkled with keys and reeds to emerge exuberantly from the gloomy winters of the last few years. Channeling four songwriters and astride a decade of history, Halflight lives!
Finally, a friendly shore
Somewhere in the inner north
