Album Notes
In 1995...four friends decide to channel their creativity and love of music into their own brand of rock and roll. They work their way into the studio with a collection of songs to record even before playing their first show or deciding on a name. What follows is some modest gigging success, some local airplay, several awards for "band name of the month", and a break-up worthy of Behind the Music.
Fast forward to 2003, these four friends reunite, older, wiser and seriously jonesing for a taste of the old chemistry they had been lacking in subsequent musical endeavors. What follows is a new Pharrah Phosphate, one that channels their creative energy and tension into original, emotive and atmospheric rock. Songs are written in a democratic process, by four members with far ranging musical tastes, which lend to a sometimes familiar yet impossible to pinpoint sound. Sometimes kitschy, but always catchy, Pharrah Phosphate uniquely blends Britpop, Classic Rock, Goth with a touch of Mod for good measure. Two vocalists share lead vocals-different yet complimentary to each other and the bands shared vision. They are anchored by a rock solid rhythm section and sweetened with three part harmonies.

Farrah Collins

Great music when your mellow! My favorite was Ripe Tide!


Get up and dance, or sit and relax...
Swirling guitars, spaced-out keys, thumping bass lines and pounding drums, Pharrah makes you want to get up and dance, then brings you back down with their emotionally charged blend of guitar rock, goth and brit-pop. From the obvious influences of Depeche Mode and U2, to not so obvious Queen and New Order, this quartet isn't afraid to wear their musical hearts on their collective sleeves. Stand out tracks "Regret" and "Back Inside of Love" showcase the groups wonderfully eclectic sound and vision. Two lead singers/lyric writers helps mix up the sound and keep you intrested, while a strong rythym section and 3 part harmonies set them apart from the crowd. There's not alot of bands out there these days willing to take the chance to be different, but Pharrah does so willingly. In a time in music when it's cool to have "The" in your name or wear dirty clothes, these guys bring a refreshing sound and image to the fore. While probably not quite the catalyst to start a new musical revolution, this album is fresh and exciting. It brings to mind all your faves from the 80's and points us forward to the future all at the same time. Definetly worth the 12 bucks, the cd is a keeper. Better yet, if you have a chance, check them out live, you won't regret it.

Elise Mac - The U.K.

Moody guitar rock with an 80's edge
On first listen, Pharrah Phosphate sound as if they might be a band in search of a direction, but it's this very difference in styles on their album that is the direction they hoped to accomplish. "Waiting For Summer" brings to mind brit rockers Doves, and "Everything Girl" invokes the hushed acoustic whisper of a Badly Drawn Boy ballad. Stand outs "Riptide" smacks of Depeche Mode, while "Regret" seems to take it's up beat tempo-meets-melancholy-lyrics sound from The Cure. Great guitar and ryhtym sections throughout, the album never lacks for a driving beat. The dueling lead singers and three part harmonies make for something you don't see everyday, while the band never strays too far as to alienate their listeners. The songs bury themselves in your head, but in a fun sing-along in the car kinda way. I haven't taken the disc out of the player in days, and it's not going anywhere anytime soon.
