Phèdre Plays the Late Show Tomorrow Night at Mercury LoungeJune 8th, 2012
Airick Woodhead, the guy behind the Doldrums, and Hooded Fang frontman Daniel Lee and bassist April Aliermo teamed up recently to form Phèdre. The name comes from a Greek mythological tale of infidelity while the sound is a hodgepodge of synths, a little bit of rap, some lo-fi pop and a mix of male and female vocals. The Toronto trio initially got on the map with the (NSFW) video of “In Decay” before playing their first show or releasing their self-titled debut album. And now Phèdre (above, playing “In Decay”) is on the road. See them play the late show tomorrow night at Mercury Lounge.
