Phoenix Foundation - Friend Ship LP
Memphis Industries Records
The Phoenix Foundation release their new album “Friend Ship” on 16 October 2020 via Memphis Industries. The New Zealand outfit have lived many lives, from high school distortion addicts to indie folk trippers to masters of motorik dream pop. It’s been five years since their last album, “Give Up Your Dreams”, but that downtime has been well spent. Writing, recording, touring with a Symphony Orchestra and creating the acclaimed soundtrack for Taika Waititi's “Hunt For The Wilderpeople”.
And much like the band is able to happily glide between numerous genres, they too have brought in a number of different styles and voices in the form of guest contributions. Nadia Reid, Hollie Fullbrook (Tiny Ruins), Dave Dobbyn, Anita Clark (Motte) and the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra all feature.
