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 … Continue reading New Album From Phobophobes, Share I Mean It All
