When scouring through submissions and scores of new artists, you inevitably come across some that you’re hoping to like. Phosphene is one of those groups. Combining a great image (seriously; have you seen the girl’s hair?), impressive fan metrics, and a polished production, there’s a ton going for the group. While the group’s songs aren’t consistently ‘hooky’ enough as they’ll need to be to cross over, tracks like “On My Own” can’t be denied. Jeni provides a charismatic lead vocal and a ton of star potential. Check this band out for yourself and see what you think.
