Another nice, slower tune for everyone this week as we plough through Jan. This is Somehow by Phony Ppl!
Hailing from Brooklyn, New York, Phony Ppl is a group founded in 2010, originally consisting of nine members, the majority of them high school friends. The group has released a handful of albums and are hugely respected for combining R&B and soul vibes with classic band undertones. Now a five-piece band, their most successful album to date is Yesterday’s Tomorrow, released in 2015 featuring this song as it’s closing number.
A beautiful, simple number, Somehow is a song that is easy to lose yourself in thanks to fantastic vocals and charismatic tunes. More than anything, it feels like a piece of music that was put together with great artistic intelligence and care to detail, hitting so many pleasing marks in terms of emotion, rhythm and suave. There can’t be many other songs that pass by as quickly as this one does.
We hope you enjoy this tune and have a great week, with lots of love from The Culture Cove!
