With their debut full-length album Yesterday’s Tomorrow released in 2015, Phony Ppl captured critical acclaim and attention from prestigious outlets like The New York Times, NPR, and Rolling Stone. The album featured the standout track Why iii Love The Moon, showcasing the band’s innovative approach to music.

Phony Ppl’s follow-up album, mō’zā-ik (Mozaik), released in 2019, further solidified their reputation as musical boundary-pushers. The album transcended time and classification, with tracks like Way Too Far and Before You Get A Boyfriend resonating with fans across the globe.

Their latest album, Euphonyus, was a labor of love that took three years to create. Released in late 2022, the album embraces the duality of their connection with the audience (You – Phony – Us) and embodies the very essence of its title, being pleasing to the ear. Euphonyus brings together danceable, vibrant, and joyful tracks alongside songs that delve into the depths of sadness, sorrow, and lust.
