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.
As for what they take from the real world, Phèdre’s music borrows from hip-hop, psych and 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. They recently wrapped up a tour of Asia, which included dates in Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and the Philippines. 2016 will see them entering a new cycle, with some new energetic releases.
