Rising into 2017 nestled atop a wave of attention focused towards the revitalized South London scene, are Phobophobes, with new single ‘The Never Never’. Listen below.

Following previous single ‘Human Baby’, an elegy to their late guitarist George Russell that was played every day for a week on BBC 6Music ‘The Never Never’ arrives as an ode to the precarious survivalism of society’s most disenfranchised. Swirling through repetitive slogans, rubbishing the adverts that promise a life we can’t really afford as pastiche, and asking earnestly, “what separates those treading water to survive from the religious idols who struggled so similarly?”

As explained by frontman Jamie Taylor: “The Never Never is a critique of today’s excessive consumerism. The repetitive and slogan-esque nature of the track evokes the reductive nature of advertising.”

Following a single launch show at London’s Moth Club, Phobophobes will tour the UK with Life, during April on the dates below. The band are currently readying their debut full-length album, and will release ‘The Never Never’ on 7” vinyl on Friday 24th March 2017 via Ra-Ra Rok Records.
