Ars Phoenix / Bio

Press for the new Ars Phoenix release, Hanging Fire:

A Best of 2011 Album Pick: "Gloriously trim album of impeccably tarnished beauty" --UK Music Journalist Mick Mercer

"A post-punk album with gothic flavor. Skillfully layered sounds of keyboard, guitar and synths give each track a haunting, cinematic feel comparable to the psychotronic film genre." --The Fine Print

"Dark wave, post punk, electro noise, shoegaze, these are the areas visited by Jon and Paige or, if you prefer, Ars Phoenix, an unnerving combo that follows the paths of favorites Screen Vinyl Image but with more somberness and electronics. The debut of Hanging Fire speaks for itself from the opening song Hanging Fire to . . . the dark wave leads that characterize most of the songs and qualify Ars Phoenix to stay on the front line with bands like Cold Cave and the Soft Moon, remodeling the styles of the dark garbed 80's while bringing them up to date for our times." --The Blog That Celebrates Itself (Trans. from Portuguese)

"For fans of darkwave postpunk (think Xymox, New Order/Joy Division, She Wants Revenge, The Cure) with solid lyrical content, danceability, moodiness, and quality, check out half-Vero/half-Gainesville band, Ars Phoenix's brand new album: Hanging Fire." --Electronic SubSouth
