Everyone’s favorite Italo-UK genius, Phonat, is back with a brand new EP for OWSLA, titled Never. “Never is a song that I’ve been working on for very long time because it is very precious to me,” says Phonat about the upcoming release. “It’s about those meaningful and defining moments you’ve experienced that you’re trying hard to recreate. The irrational and impossible desire of human beings to rewind as opposed to looking forward, which only produces nostalgia.”
The new title track — a summery, funk-blasted vocal power-house reminiscent of prime-time Jamiroquai — is followed by “Phase to Face” (Daft Punk reference?), which showcases Phonat’s familiar dynamic breakdowns and abstract futuristic noise.
