PHOENO

Pop // Dublin, Dublin // they/them

PHOENO is Adam Matthews and Liam Corbett. Their collaboration has been a process of shedding skin to arrive at a place of emotional rawness and truth. “We write songs out of our own necessity,” they say, “there is an urgency in the expression.” When these songs began to form in 2019, Adam and Liam found themselves casting off a traditional band structure, and instead, began tracing their way out of previous practices, simmering in electronic soundscapes while anthemic statements coalesced. Deciding to embrace the space between and gravitate towards the feelings such vulnerability brought forth - grief, isolation, solitude - PHOENO rose.
