MY-HI Releases New Song “Phaser”
Brighton-based alt-rock band MY-HI, consisting of Daniel Veal (vocals/guitar), Benjamin Smith (guitar), Daniel Pearse (bass) and Jack Taylor (drums), released their first single of 2023 called “Phaser” on April 29, 2023.
The song is the follow-up to “Skintight”, which was released last December.
Recorded at Brighton Electric Studios with Alex Gordon, the track started life as a live session.
The track lyrically explores the concept of societal pressures. Daniel Veal said of the song, “In a landscape strewn with endless financial hurdles, vainglorious boasters and vague, unattainable cliches, it's easy to get lost in it all. To compare. To lose yourself and your ambition. The lyrics are lightly seasoned with self acceptance, a pinch of urgency and a healthy splodge of diving headfirst into the unknown, unapologetically. It's important not to lose sight of your aims and to ride the maddening wave through the peaks and troughs of life! Even when you aren't quite sure of where the hell it's taking you.”
- He continued, “I've always pictured our brains as this phaser machine. A machine that can manipulate itself to adapt to whatever situation we find ourselves in, even when we are partially unsure of who we are at times. I suppose the song is a low key identity crisis, but from an angle of 'it's normal to be completely alienated from your own self'. You're a phaser, yes you are!”
