New Zealand's award-winning internationally acclaimed sextet, The Phoenix Foundation are today sharing their breezy new single, 'Landline' which arrives with a magnificently colourful visual directed by Ezra Simons.
This new single, taken from the new album Friend Ship which is set for release on October 16, 2020 via Universal NZ, follows the Brooklyn Vegan, The Line of Best Fit and Earmilk-tipped Nadia Reid featured track, 'Hounds of Hell' which was released last month.
'Landline' positions itself as another fine example of the band's firm grasp on fusing light psychedelia with 80s pop tropes and indie-folk. It's an idea represented in the sound of the track, which nods to the likes of Orange Juice, The Pastels and Aztec Camera, and also in the accompanying surrealist visuals that capture dancing telephones chasing retro-dressed spies.
