A Musical Exorcism: PHOURIST & the PHOTONS – “We’re All Born Screaming” (single)
Phourist & the Photons – “We’re All Born Screaming” is available @ Bandcamp.
by Walter Price
Regardless of how an artist starts writing a song, the experience or observation that inspired the words, it will always be open to interpretation. Tragedy, love, existence, acceptance…they all can play huge roles in crafting lyrical emotion. The new single, “We’re All Born Screaming”, from Louisville, Kentucky’s Phourist & the Photons, embodies all four of these ingredients. Wrapped in a sweeping and theatrical indie-rock masterstroke, vocalist Nick ‘Phourist’, has a certain blend of Ben Folds and Ezra Koenig range as he recounts a period of struggle. And whatever realities, turmoil the storyteller was working through…is open, for translation. Make it your own.
The band has a slew of upcoming Spring and Summer tour dates and has announced a new album has been written.
