PHANES’ Hypnotic & Melancholy ‘Drowning’


PHANES is an emerging singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist producer who made his debut in 2022 with the single “Warning Signs.” That track introduced a multi-talented artist who writes deeply emotional, genre-fluid songs that blend elements of dark pop, alt-rock and hip-hop. The self-taught 21 year-old musician writes, performs and produces his music entirely solo.

Since that debut, PHANES has connected with thousands of fans around the world across multiple platforms. His songs pair dark and introspective lyrics with soft spoken vocals and a hypnotic dark wave vibe. Citing influences like The Neighbourhood and Lil Peep, the artist creates a soulful and melancholy sound.

“Drowning” is the brand new single from PHANES, released worldwide via all major streaming services on July 15, 2022. A lonely electric guitar introduces the song. The singer steps to the mic to deliver a wistful and somber open letter to a lost loved one. Ambient synths expand the horizon. Soon, deep electronic bass tones slide into the mix on a jazzy breakbeat. It is a beautiful and heartbreaking sound.

Losing a loved one can be hard. I tried to explain the different stages of grief.
