"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
Honored in 2014 with a City Hall proclamation declaring February 13 ‘Sphynx Day’ in Austin, Sphynx is Austin’s premiere pop band. Now, after cutting their teeth in dive bars and house parties across the US, Austin’s secret is out.
2017 was a key breakout year for the band that included the release of 2 EPs and playing packed venues and festivals across the US. Opening for top acts like Questlove and Walk The Moon were special highlights.
The momentum continued into 2018 with the February release of ‘Patterns,’ a synth-wave groove illustrating the band’s penchant for timeless hooks with a modern edge. The single wasstreamed over 43,000 times in its first week and has received radio play across the US and Mexico.
2018 included their annual performance during SXSW 2018 at the ‘Sphynx & Friends Day Party’ and headlining for a capacity crowd at the popular MidCoast Takeover showcase. Shorty thereafter, the TV series Nashville used ‘Shadow’ in the season finale.
However, the best was touring in the UK twice in 2018. Packing clubs and garnering praise from British press, the band is already planning their next visit to the UK in 2019.
With a string of videos and singles set for release in 2019 and appearances scheduled at festivals and clubs across the US and Europe, Sphynx’s buzz is just beginning. Years spent sleeping in vans and touring relentlessly have shaped a band with a fresh take on pop music and a stadium-worthy live show.
