notverynicecream is another staggering release from one of the UK’s most inventive and unusual bands. Eclectic, irreverent, titanically heavy and saturated throughout with a signature sense of British whimsy, the album will only see Phoxjaw‘s star rising further.

Written in various states of lockdown, notverynicecream is a glimpse into Phoxjaw‘s future mindset. A sugar-sweet sense of abandon covers darker feelings of loneliness, depression, and isolation. Where the band’s debut album, Royal Swan, was a record of nationally-expressed extroversion, notverynicecream is Phoxjaw‘s declaration of introversion. Nihilism, nostalgia and suffering served in a sugary cone; progressive, punishing sonics glossed over with lustrous hyper-pop influences.

notverynicecream follows a busy period for the Bristolian oddballs – the group made their debut Download appearance in 2022, performed two magnificent sets at 2000trees, and have shortly returned from a sell-out tour with Norwegian deathpop group Blood Command, as well as their debut performance at Germany’s Reeperbahn Festival.

Phoxjaw are:

Danny Garland – vocals/bass
Josh Gallop – guitar/keys
Kieran Gallop – drums
Alexander Share – guitar/vocals
