Welcome to Phylo and the new live music. Phylo is - dance club inspired drum and bass grooves combined with soaring melodies in a catchy pop song format.

Biography

Phylo! Their sound stalks the downtown streets, sleek like a cheetah, 80s New Wave meets Trip-Hop Funk. Cock your ear to their funky sonic sweep and let Phylo wash away the cobwebs of the old dusty, musty music with their ocean wave of sound: A blend of rock-solid beats and hypnotic grooves, shimmering keyboards, soaring melodies and flat-out well-written songs.

This is the new music... this is Phylo.

Phylo's incredibly talented diverse musicians have roots from around the world: Israel, Trinidad, Portugal, India, England and Canada; and they are influenced by almost every corner on the musical map: Pop, Hip-Hop, House, Blues, Jazz & Funk. In late 2003 their worlds collided at the nexus point, the modern-day interzone, the city where every nation meets: Toronto, Canada, where they quickly became a fresh new fixture of the local music scene.

Phylo is a group of musicians lucky enough to be playing the music they want to hear. Raised on Depeche Mode, New Order, The Smiths, Sting, Peter Gabriel, U2, Madonna and Blondie, Phylo is staking out their own territory and finding their own way into the hearts & minds of those in the know. Phylo wades into the new wave and then goes deeper, plunging into a cool sonicscape that is entirely their own. As guitarist Riaz Hassan says, "We really are out here doing something we believe in."

And we are all luckier for it. And so Phylo remains, riding the crest of the Post Wave sound, diverse but united, one spirit under the groove.

Lyrics

Nothing Fits

Written By: Phylo

Now I see the naked truth
Nothing fits like loving you
No one else compares to you
Nothing Fits like loving you

When I walk the streets of Rome
Nothing fits like loving you
When I go to bed alone
Nothing fits like loving you

‘Cause I can go anywhere
And I can see anyone
Nothing fits
Nothing fits like you

When you leave I slip your clothes on
When you watch I love to dress
When you smile it takes my breath away
When I watch you love to dress

‘Cause I can go anywhere
And I can see anyone
Nothing fits
Nothing fits like you

No one can tell me who to be
This feels true
Nothing fits like you
No one can tell me who to love
This feels true
Nothing fits like you

Can You Feel It

Written By: Phylo

Something's going on
I feel it in my body
Something feels right
It's coming from my soul

So let the frequency move you
Let the rhythm take you
It's time to give in
Trust, and let go

So get into the groove
Let me see your body move
This music's sounding right
So move your body right

Can you feel it
Can you feel the music groovin
If you can feel it
Let me see your body movin

If you see it in a friend
You will know connection
The feeling of one
Will put you in that dimension

So let the frequency move you
Let the rhythm take you
It's time to give in
Trust, and let go

So get into the groove
Let me see your body move
This music's sounding right
This party's on all night

Can you feel it
Can you feel the music groovin
If you can feel it
Let me see your body movin

Dance

Written By: Phylo

Live inside
Each and every note
Forget your limitations
And get them to go
Ecstacy's inside you
That very sacred place
Feel the freedom
In your space

Escape into the notes
Like it's nobody's business
Flowing in union
With your own essence

And move like you are the music
Prove that you are the rhythm
And dance like nobody's watching
Nobody's watching

Close your eyes
Whatever it takes
Dissolve into the music
We'll get to that place
Let the beast seduce you
Let your senses run wild
Nobody's watching
No not this time

Escape into the notes
Like it's nobody's business
Flowing in union
With your essence

And move like you are the music
Prove that you are the rhythm
Dance like nobody's watching
Nobody's watching
