New Album From Phobophobes, Share I Mean It All

South Londoners Phobophobes inhabit their own idiosyncratic avant-garde world like some bastard child of The Cramps and Talking Heads. One where post-punk, gothic, art-rock and new-wave collide forming a gloriously unpredictable sound.

We were big fans of their debut long player, 2018’s Minature World and now the band have announced the release of their second album Modern Medicine on 25th June via new label Modern Sky. In tandem, they have also shared the psychedelic and languorous three-chord-pop-ballad I Mean It All, sound-tracked with sea-sick organ and distorted vocals. It is described by the band as “a gloomy tale of new love dying in its prime by a colossal event”.

The accompanying video was edited by the band’s new bassist Daisy Smith and is a nostalgic collage of 1970’s home movie footage filmed during frontman Jamie Bardolph Taylor’s Grandmother’s birthday celebrations, with shots of his then teen Mother and Aunt dancing and featuring his Grandfather who died before he was born. As Jamie expands “It’s obviously a very personal film to me but I wanted to share it with the world as I think it’s incredibly shot. I felt the theme and mood of the song suited this portal into a familiar world before I was running around on the planet.
