Tel Aviv-based electro-soul 6 piece band Phototaxis, is always seeking for the light in their compositions. However, it can’t always be found. The lyrics remind of poems and stories from old times. Confusing and irritating sometimes but there is always a whole world drawn to every sentence and a spark of light even in the darkest places. We stand out the unique connection between a soul artist with a mysterious and hypnotizing voice (Yael Feldinger) and a fine electronic music creator with an up-to-date sound (Itai Tsuk), creating a fascinating combination of rough sound with club feelings. Phototaxis corresponds with up-to-date currents and produces that elusive thing that will make you fall in love.
PHOTOTAXIS can’t do nothing else but write music, which takes them to the most intimate inner-self. They exposed themselves to the darkest rooms and lit them up with furious colors. NEVERLANDER is the fourth Album the band releases over eight years and one who knows them all would feel that they moved towards the light themselves throughout this project.
The whole album, from each track to the artwork and the fonts has gained a special clarity; they broke with modesty and cloudiness. The message of NEVERLANDER is clear, powerful and straightforward through each element of the album. Each track tells a story and the atmosphere brings versatility in music that carries you through wild, loud rides and fragile mysterious thrillers. The compositions and arrangements are ingenious and yet fluent and danceable. The artwork is minimalistic and modern. Sometimes less is more.
