When we face the fact that we do not know who we are, or where are we going in this ocean of chaos called life, it has been political, religious and educational authorities the ones who attempted to comfort us by giving us orders and regulations to form in our minds their view of reality. In Phonobox, we reject this reality created by authorities and we believe we can develop one of our own. With this in mind, we create experimental rock songs that combines music styles as Progressive, Industrial, Alternative, Psychedelic and Electronic rock music, influenced by bands such as QOTSA, Pink Floyd, Air, Radiohead and Porcupine Tree. This results in an ideal experience for those who enjoy altering the state of consciousness through an experimental sonic trip.
