The Phoenix Foundation – Pot

I just recently stumbled across this stunning song and the equally engrossing music video for The Phoenix Foundation’s “Pot,” the lead single from their fourth album, Buffalo, released earlier this year.

The soft winding guitar melodies, the quiet rhythm, and the lovely vocal harmonies make an idyllic combination. It’s the perfect backdrop for a light breezy summer day spent among blinding sunshine, Technicolor hued flowers, and absurdly blue skies. Even though it’s winter and the wind is howling outside, somehow I still find this song perfect.

The Phoenix Foundation, an exuberant six piece band from Wellington, has been churning out upbeat songs since 1997. I’m sad that I’ve only recently heard of them, as their songs put an ever widening smile on my face.

Be sure to check out the video below, it’s a surprisingly cinematic black and white montage of endless patterns and movement that is really quite cinematic.
