Anchored by front woman Monica Martin's hushed vocals, PHOX employs banjo and multi-layered acoustic guitars to flesh out its intricate arrangements.

Fresh off the release of its self-titled debut, the Baraboo, Wisconsin band stopped by KDHX for a three song set of richly composed indie folk.

"1936" finds Martin's voice backed by lush vocal harmonies, effectively building crescendos without breaking from the track's tranquil lull. Interlocking guitar lines take the spotlight on "Kingfisher," the most engaging and varied cut of the set. PHOX concluded with the rising percussion of "Espeon," masterfully blending dense instrumentals with Martin's understated delivery.

PHOX is far from alone in the indie folk realm, but few groups employ its effortless mastery of the live arena. Performing with the precision and confidence of a veteran act, PHOX is in the early stages of a promising career.
