PHOON was found with a 4 men lineup in Kowloon Tong HongKong
Despite their relative obscurity, local indie-rock outfit Phoon has achieved considerable success, having performed at Clockenflap 2017, opening for US indie royalty Diiv, and performing a sold-out album release show at Mom Livehouse. Defined by youthful, upbeat instrumentals, crisp vocals and some serious songwriting sensibilities, Phoon is a hidden gem with tremendous potential to become Hong Kong’s next international rock sensation since infamous Cantopop band Beyond. Although Phoon has only released one mini-album so far, their musical versatility and readiness to push boundaries are evident and promising. With the bittersweet singalong that is “People in the Dark”, the energetic, riff-driven, jazzy “You!”, near-screamo “不妙”, and the feel-good “Me!” that seamlessly shifts into EDM, Phoon is the revolutionary that Hong Kong’s music scene sorely needs.
