Phase is a hopeful sort of composition, built up through contemplative guitars and vocals which soar above the instruments. The track is able to look back to 1990s alternative / college rock, while possessing a smoothness and finesse that far outstrips efforts from that era. We’re loving the easy-going sound of the guitars, the on-point tack taken with the drums, and a cohesive that is downright unparalleled. The band comes back with authority at the 2:40 mark, providing a coda to an impressive effort. Couple Phase with June’s live performance of Rings back in June to gain a better appreciation of the act.
