"With the moves, the tunes, the energy, and the deft use of animal print, there’s no good reason why Sphynx shouldn’t be as big as the monument they’re named after."
-Austin-American Statesman, Austin City Limits Review
"Glam-rockers Sphynx are millennial's answer to Queen...This electro-pop trio could give Andrew W.K. a run for his money in a headbanging contest, while still hitting those falsettos and looking fabulous doing it."
“Sphynx is like Tame Impala if Kevin Parker grew up on a heavy diet of disco. Or maybe Tame Impala is just Sphynx if they had the budget for a killer light show?”
-NPR, All Songs Considered
Sphynx is a long-time fixture of the Austin music scene; they were even honored in 2014 with a City Hall proclamation declaring February 13 ‘Sphynx Day’ in Austin. Now, after 7 years of relentless touring, 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.
