Phil Davis Releases 'Posh Posh' EP Today
The Posh Posh EP is available to stream on Soundcloud and Bandcamp.
Son of a Christian missionary, Phil Davis (Posh Posh) picked up the guitar and graduated to the role of youth group worship leader at a early age. He started producing instrumental music with heavy strings and electronic beats in high school and by college graduation he'd composed over 60 works and scored two independent films.
In the following year he moved to Indiana where he played acoustic guitar in the Grateful Dead cover band, Stealin' The Farm. A year later he to moved to Portland and played in the 90s rock band Race of Strangers. After a short six months Oh!Bernard was formed as the result of a band split with the drummer, Jeff Greene.
During this time he was also producing a music documentary on the punk rock band Hotter Than A Crotch. Although he wasn't playing music with them, the experience of touring through California and Washington introduced him to the NW rock scene. In between music projects he moved to Springfield, MO to accept a job as a video editor. Magnetic Memory began there in his attic room apartment with a laptop and acoustic guitar. After the Attic Room EP was released members were recruited and Magnetic Memory was officially formed. A couple members have come and gone, but the band continues to gig regularly in SW Missouri and they will be recording a new EP January 2014.
Posh Posh began as the electronic musings that come when you're slightly tired, even if just for a moment, of rock. It's the result of a year of experimenting with complex synthesizers and re-decovering his voice as electronic artist. While Magnetic Memory is conservatively indie rock with all guitars, the electronic nature of Posh Posh allows more space to be flamboyant and eccentric with synth and processed vocals. The Posh Posh EP is being self-released and distributed starting December 15th, 2013.
