Phoria began in 1997, when Trewin, former guitarist Jeb, and Ed began taking music lessons at their Salisbury primary school Originally on cello, classical guitar, and violin, it was there that the three classmates first wrote and performed together

As friends, they spent their youth in the Salisbury countryside, absorbing music and switching between the disciplines of songwriting, electric guitar, and piano, before leaving for university in 2005

Jeb and Ed both attended the University of Southampton Ed continued to study music, specialising in violin and piano Jeb studied for a sociology degree, though spent much of his time experimenting with music and visual arts

Trewin attended the Dartington College of Arts in Devon He had initially enrolled on as fine arts course – utilising his skill as a painter – but was soon drawn back to music He left Dartington with over two hundred original musical compositions

Having completed their studies, Trewin, Ed, and Jeb returned to Salisbury and took full time jobs Jeb's included a brief spell as an insurance agent Ed, with a passion for acting, took large but unfulfilling parts in a series of niche-market films

It was not long before the three of them realised that their future lay elsewhere, and moved to Brighton to start their musical careers

While studying at Southampton, Jeb and Ed had met Tim Douglas through a mutual friend Following successful spells playing guitar in bands across the South West, Tim moved to Brighton to play bass, and complete the Phoria line-up along with then drummer, Ross Crick

Seryn Burden joined the band in August 2011, twelve months after the release of Yourself Still, following Ross's departure

In 2016, following the release of Volition, and a string of successful EPs and UK and international tours, Jeb Hardwick left Phoria to pursue a career in filmmaking He was replaced by James Cheeseman

Yourself Still 2010

The band's first EP Yourself Still was released in 2010 and earned positive reviews from various music blogs Popular blog The Sirens Sound reviewed the EP, stating that 'carries various musical vibes from cinematic orchestra to post-rock and indie-rock to a stunning pop environment leading the overall outcome of this record to blazed emotion' Describing Phoria as 'A band you definitely want to keep an eye on' Similarly, online alternative music zine InFortycom described the EP as 'A delicate mix of indie and post-rock', continuing: 'Phoriaalready boast a sophisticated and polished sound It’s a mournful one too, but they don’t dwell on it – there’s too much progression and dreamy ambition for that'

The EP was featured on CDBaby's music discovery podcast in July 2011

Bloodworks 2013

The much anticipated Bloodworks was released through Akira Records in Spring 2013

Lead single 'Red' hit number 2 in The Hype Machine blog aggregator charts within only a few days, cementing the track as one of the standout singles of 2013 from a relatively unknown band With the single released just days before the EP, popular magazine ThisIsFakeDIY said of the track ' the impression that this here EP's going to be a game-changer Glossy production is met midway by a startling, intimate style of songwriting, half Youth Lagoon, half something grander and more orchestral'

The EP was met with glowing reviews Earmilkcom said of the band: 'they took their unique approach and ran with it, producing a composition where all five songs stand apart as gems They have created an overall unique experience, with emotion drawn out from the subtle and unweighted vocal approach Every component seems to build and break down around the travelling vocals and in doing so, they create an almost angelic feeling at times' Musicbrokemybones described Bloodworks as an 'incredibly captivating record'

Several tracks from the EP have been licensed to festival-featured European cinema, and Canadian television series Saving Hope

Display 2014

Display was released in June 2014 The lead single 'Emanate' received 250,000 plays across YouTube and Soundcloud in the first two weeks

Volition 2016

Volition was released in June 2016 following several delays It received positive reviews across the critical sphere, with The 405 describing the album as 'gigantic effortlessly intimate,' praising the 'cohesion in sound and vision' Ben Yung of therevueca gave a glowing review, stating: 'Volition is stunning, an absolute emotional roller coaster from start to finish It is easy to understand why it took two years for the Brighton-based five-piece to complete their debut, as every single detail has been given the utmost attention and the production is refined and masterful Every note, every vocal component, every lyric, every instrumental texture has been attended to and nothing feels out of place With the precision of a surgeon and the steely aim of an assassin, Phoria hits every mark, including piercing a hole through our hearts with their visceral and emotional electronica'

The album was supported by festival appearances throughout 2016 and a UK and European tour

In 2018, the song "Evolve" was featured in an episode of the Syfy original show, The Magicians


Phoria draw on a range of musical genres to create their sound In the days of Yourself Still, chordal guitar figures and often dense instrumentation drew comparisons to such bands as Radiohead, Sigur Rós, and Mew Popular music blog therecommendernet, when reviewing preview material from the bands then forthcoming Bloodworks EP, wrote 'Thisisn't just reminiscent of Radiohead, this is reminiscent of Radiohead at their best' Martin Grech, Cinematic Orchestra, and Elbow are also major influences The band have more recently been compared favourably to Aphex Twin, Autechre, and James Blake
