Phobophobes have shared their new single, ‘Moustache Mike’

It's inspired by American iconography.

South London six-piece Phobophobes have shared their new single, ‘Moustache Mike’.

The first teaser from their upcoming second album, it was inspired by a drug-fuelled American banjo player, and 60s icon Baby Jane Holzer.

“I actually went over to her house,” says frontman Jamie Taylor. “I thought it’d be quite interesting to pair how she is now as an aging socialite and the evolution of the American dream, from a dream to something else. It’s photogenic America disappearing. 

“I can’t stand American politics, I can’t stand what they do to the planet, but at the same time, there is a sort of intrigue from all sorts of eras, from the ‘50s to watching American TV when you were a kid. You’re still drawn to it.”

Have a listen below, and catch the band live at Peckham Audio on 9th April.
