Four Phonica is a Berlin-based alternative rock band, originally from Ukraine.
The band was founded by the members of an accomplished Ukrainian act Marakesh (called by Billboard Russia as “solid and manifestly eclectic sound”), who moved to Berlin in 2012.
After appearing in the Grand Theft Auto IV video game soundtrack, Marakesh actively toured throughout Ukraine, Russia and Europe. In addition to headline shows, they performed in supporting Placebo. In 2012 Marakesh was put on hiatus and its members moved to Berlin to start their new chapter as Four Phonica.
In February 2014, Four Phonica premiered new single Sabotage mixed by the Grammy-winning sound engineer Adam Hawkins (Limp Bizkit, PINK, Alanis Morissette). The energetic track with grungy attitude will be followed up by the self-titled EP to be released on February 28.
“…an apocalyptic take on electro-pop, as the title Everything Will Be Destroyed fittingly suggests.” mb! by Mercedes Benz
“There’s a lot of rock, and a lot of electro in this sound, but it works really well together. Gives me a 90′s Placebo feeling inside of me.” Alfitude
“Really nicely styled, slightly dark pop-rock, that reminds of bands like Placebo, but because of the vocals has its own note.” Lausitzer Rundschau
“Simply superb and emotion-packed industrial electro-pop. Very very good.” The Sound Of Confusion[youtube id=”rdOFcDHs91U”] [youtube id=”z5bA0HyGE00″] [youtube id=”JQOOJXxZQmo#t=44″]
