Toronto melted-pop duo Phèdre make music for escaping. The visually evocative soundscapes emerging on their previous releases take form like a great comic; a concise narrative, bright colors, and psychedelic textures. If comic books had strobe lights Phedre’s certainly would.

This week the group shares the gritty, schizophrenic dance track “Zastroszy.” Stream it over at THUMP and on SoundCloud.

As for what they take from the real world, Phèdre’s music borrows from hip-hop, psychand high-bpm electronica to make music digestible to internet-induced-ADD-types and also those who can sit through a heavily conceptual full-length.

Phèdre has toured extensively in North America and Europe, including playing shows in Mexico, Iceland and Russia. This week the band will embark on a tour of Asia, including dates in Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and the Philippines. 2016 will see them entering a new cycle, with some new energetic releases.
