From the primordial slime of the independent music scene in the muddy gloom of a long Melbourne winter, the Phosphenes have emerged with their unique pop ’n’ roll sound.

Delving shallowly into the world of relationships, longings, and reformed vegetarians with laptops, armed with poignant and quirky humour and dripping in vocal harmonies, the Phosphenes create imperfect three-minute pop songs from a standard dysfunctional rock line-up with added harmonica for your convenience.

Describing your life or the one you almost had, there's no teen angst here, only the slow ache caused by trying to gnaw away at the limb stuck in the trap of the world.

Hey what's the real story?
