PHISH, OBLIVION

Phish, the legendary jam band from Vermont, continues to push musical boundaries with their latest release, "Oblivion", from their their upcoming album, Evolve,  set to drop on July 12th. Known for their genre-defying style and improvisational brilliance, Phish once again showcases their creative prowess and importance within the music scene in totality.

“Oblivion” stands out with its intricate instrumentals and thought-provoking lyrics, featuring layered guitar riffs, dynamic rhythm changes, and melodic explorations that take listeners on a journey. The song captures the essence of Phish’s live performances, with a structure that allows for improvisation and the unexpected. On the other hand, comparing it to another pre-released single, “Evolve”, listeners might take in a different yet complementary vibe.  That track is loaded with funky bass lines, catchy hooks, and a more straightforward but equally compelling arrangement. Together, these singles demonstrate Phish's versatility and mastery of their craft, blending rock, jazz, funk, and even elements of classical music into a seamless auditory experience.

Now, let’s talk about the Phish community, or as they prefer to be called, Phishheads. This isn’t just a fan base; it’s a full-blown society with its own customs, rituals, and a collective enthusiasm that could power a small country. Phishheads are the friendliest folks you’ll ever meet at a concert, always ready to share a smile, a story, or something else if you catch my drift.... This sense of community extends beyond the concert venue, with fans maintaining connections and sharing experiences through online forums, and social media.

For those who have never experienced Phish live, attending a concert is a must. Phish shows are unique events where the setlist changes nightly, and the band’s improvisational skills shine, creating a one-of-a-kind experience each time. The energy in the venue is palpable, with the band feeding off the crowd’s enthusiasm and vice versa. Whether you're a seasoned concertgoer or new to the scene, seeing Phish live is a transformative journey into the heart of musical exploration and collective joy.  And be sure to grab a copy of  Phish's upcoming release Evolve on July 12th.  This long awaited album is sure to be an instant classic, and will surely highlight why this band is so special to so many all around the world.
