In this day and age of The Internet, it's rare (and refreshing) to try and research a new band and hardly come up with any info. Brothers Stevie (vocals/guitar) and Alan Jukes (drums) make up Saint PHNX, a new duo from Glasgow.
Sounding like an anthem, and reminiscent of Kasabian, their first track is called Reload. Why the title? According to Stevie, "Reload was inspired by man’s inherent addiction to tribalism and conflict. History has shown us that in any given period there has always been conflict and it seems to us that we never learn from our mistakes, we just reload."
After launching the video for Reload, they garnered 30,000 Facebook views overnight, with little to no promotion, and were Q magazine's "Track of the day" soon after.
After playing in various different bands in the past, the brothers formed Saint PHNX in January, and have been working hard on it since. They've been compared to both the Arctic Monkeys and Queens of the Stone Age on music blogs already – Alan's drumming, however, is heavily inspired by hip hop, and the duo's love of Kendrick Lamar.
You can catch their debut show in Glasgow at Nice'N'Sleazy on July 21.
