PHONY
DEBUT ALBUM SONGS YOU’LL NEVER SING 
OUT TOMORROW via SMARTPUNK RECORDS
‘PAY WHAT YOU WANT’ UNTIL MIDNIGHT TONIGHT

Indie songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Neil Berthier AKA PHONY has launched his debut album Songs You’ll Never Sing, which you can “pay what you want” for it via Bandcamp until tonight at midnight. His upcoming run of dates will kick off at Hong Kong in Boston on October 24th then head down the East Coast stopping in Brooklyn, Philadelphia, Richmond, and DC along the way before it heads toward the Midwest stops in Detroit, Chicago, Akron. It will conclude in Albany, NY on November 8th.
PHONY is the exact opposite of the moniker’s definition. The genre-bending debut LP, Songs You’ll Never Sing is an amalgamation of emotional pop songs coupled with dark droning trails of the mind, leaving the listener wondering what is coming next. Inspired by the progressiveness of indie rock staples like Built to Spill and Death Cab For Cutie, PHONY keeps an even keel by combining that with the classic sensibilities of Nirvana and Weezer’s Pinkerton. The subject matter covers everything from love, trust, psychedelics, anxiety, alcoholism and lucid dreams that feel much like the songs themselves.
The now Boston-based act has been traveling alone for some time now. After originally hailing from New Orleans and building a strong and loyal following in the vast musical ecosystem that the city is known for, he spent a year in Nashville to calm down for a while and get back to loving music again. In the process of doing so, Berthier moved to Chicago, where he started to tour and perfect the direction of where he wanted to go next with the project. Catch him on tour this Fall!
