I’m probably not going to be around much this weekend to post, which is why I’m putting together this 8:15 post. I’m not going to say much because most of my words in the morning are senseless and/or obscene, but don’t sleep on this one. Above everything else – production, lyrics, style, talent – is good songwriting. If you’ve got a good song, you can’t go wrong. “If This Is How Love Feels” is a good song.
They are called Phony Ppl, and they are a band of 16-18 year old kids from New York City. They’ve won several “battle of the bands” competitions around NYC, and performed with the likes of Naughty by Nature, Warm July, and Afrika Bambaataa, as well as gaining a personal cosign and rehearsal attendance from Q-Tip.
They are an 8 man front comprised of a bassist, guitarist, saxophonist, keyboard player, drummer, and three vocalists. The track I’m sending has a really R&B sound to it, but the group’s strength lies in their crossing of genres, as they have a strong grasp of R&B, rock, alternative, jazz and hip-hop.
