Phileas Fogg – “Will Never Be Played Again”

Phileas Fogg’s “Will Never Be Played Again” is an enthralling psych-rocker, building from looming, haunting verses into an emotive chorus. An unsettling, yet intriguing atmosphere builds patiently. The dark expansion of vocals and guitars at 1:50 marks a striking shift, where creeping vocals ascend into a more anthemic form. The track serves as another examples of the UK singer/songwriter’s talent for both hypnotic soundscapes and convincing production, as evidenced previously on the track “Ready or Not“. I’m always anticipating new Phileas Fogg tracks at this point.
