Blurring the skinny line between genres, Phosphorescent explored every part from people pop to nation in his mellow "New Birth in New England" efficiency at The Late Late Show on Tuesday evening (Oct. 2).
A head-nodding, foot-stomping jam, the monitor narrates Phosphorescent chief Matthew Houck's first encounter with a girl at a bar, and extra deeply, his expertise changing into a first-time father. "It was the very first time you laid eyes on me/ Your momma burst into tears/ We have been shaking within the medical basement/ And I suppose every part was on arrears," he sang in his laid-back type, his eyes shaded by a black baseball hat.
A fusion of sentimental rock with a style of jam and nation, Houck finger-picked his guitar as a six-piece back-up band added shiny guitars, bongos, dueling keyboards and steady-on drums beneath his laconic singing.
