Review: The Phoncurves | Heartstrings

Pull out your garden skirts, lens-less Ray Bans, chinos and moustaches; The Phoncurves have unleashed a little ray of indie sunshine in the form of their latest EP, Heartstrings.

This four-track collection is packed to the jam jar brim with cute, quirky tracks that will surely make your heart sing. I was hooked from the first tambourine shake to the final harmonic vocal progression.

The EP opens with the title track Heartstrings where the girls give us a taste of everything that is to come. Their a cappella tricks are exercised from the get go proving that with their voices alone, they can do anything. Seriously, who needs instruments anyway?

Don’t get me wrong, there are also some incredible instrumental performances on this EP as well.

Each and every song featured feels sincere and honest, and the intricate lyricism is woven together as tightly as the woolen scarves draped around their fans necks. Their vocal performance and harmonies are equally naïve and effortless, proving that these voices were born to sing together.

The thing I adore most about Heartstrings is that it is the absolute epitome of today’s indie music scene. Written, performed, engineered, and produced by the ladies themselves, this EP is a practically perfect almost-DIY piece in every way.

Aptly named, The Phoncurve’s EP is sure to tug on your heartstrings.
