Wasting no time to deliver us their unique sound, indie rock trio phobia quartet jumps right into the first lines of their new song “We Could Do That Though”. Singer Adam Hood’s voice is gentle, but perfectly captures the nature of the song. He’s singing about being head over heels for someone but being too nervous to tell them. He feels so strongly that he doesn’t know how to put it into words.
“Still got me tripping over these words
Like I’m just learning how to walk”
A bright addition to their new EP, Disappear Again, this song makes me think of experiencing your first love as a teenager. You know your feelings are real, but it’s confusing and exciting at the same time. You want to spend all of your time with this person you care about, but it’s hard to express without coming off too strong. When falling in love as an adult feels the same way, you know you’ve found something special. It’s nostalgic in a lighthearted way.
All this separating
But we’re invisible”
While the rest of the world is focused on the bad things in life, phobia quartet doesn’t care. They’ve found a love to distract them from all the other noise. They’re content with being invisible. The music video cuts to clips of the band on a night out at a bar and arcade. It adds a personal layer to the song. The song already had a feel-good tone to it but knowing they don’t take themselves too seriously solidified that for me. The instrumentation is also gentle but matches the vocals perfectly. The guitar gives off a surprisingly upbeat shoe-gaze vibe that has me dancing every time.
“Do you mind
If I invade your mind?”
These lyrics have been stuck in my head for days. It’s catchy and relatable. He wants to know everything about this person and really get inside their head; however, the song doesn’t feel too serious. It’s cheerful and reminiscent of my early teenage years. Even the title, “We Could Do That Though”, is the thought in a teenager’s head. “Wow, I can really see myself being with this person. We could do that”. I can just imagine myself listening to this song walking home from school as a young teenager, giddy at the idea of being in love.
