Sphynx are a glam space pop band originating from the Austin music scene and after growing their fanbase in the home state, Austin’s homegrown secret is out.
The band had a breakout year in 2017, releasing 2 EPs and playing packed venues and festivals across the US opening for top acts like Questlove and Walk The Moon. That momentum continued into 2018 with the February release of ‘Patterns,’ a synthwave groove illustrating the band’s penchant for timeless hooks with a modern edge. The single was streamed over 43,000 times in its first week and has received radio play across the US, UK, and Mexico.
Sphynx made their maiden voyage to the UK in early March where they logged 6 headline performances for enthusiastic crowds; garnering praise from the prominent UK magazine The Music Site and connecting with London songwriters and DJs. The band flew back to Austin in time for 6 more shows at SXSW 2018, receiving a warm welcome at their annual ‘Sphynx & Friends Day Party’ and headlining for a capacity crowd at the popular MidCoast Takeover showcase.
With a string of videos and singles set for release and 2018 appearances at festivals in the US and Europe, Sphynx’s buzz is just beginning. Years spent sleeping in vans and performing in dive bars have shaped a band with a fresh take on pop music and a stadium-worthy live show.
