"Fun hop"

“Though it’s easy to call The Phonies a hip-hop outfit, they feel like more than that. There’s elements of Vampire Weekend afro-beat, the melodic ear of Outkast and the harmonies of ‘60s pop… …bright as a summer’s day and as addictive as top-grade crack.” - Triple J - Home & Hosed Blog


'Sampler' EP 2003
'Keepin It Fake' EP 2006
'Crayon Factory' Single 2009
'Get Go' Single 2010



The Phonies have made an impact playing shows in nothing but speedos and chappy caps at Woodford Folk Festival, Peats Ridge, Newtown and Surry Hills Festivals. Their theatrical live shows with backup singers, lifeguards and even Referee Lampshade, has helped them build a strong following in Sydney. Since releasing their previous single Crayon Factory they’ve been listed as a featured artist on Triple J’s Unearthed and Home & Hosed.
The lads have just completed their first East coast tour, playing shows in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Byron Shire, Canberra and Wollongong. They also spent a week in Byron recording some pump new tracks & some classic burners, so look out for another single release later in the year & an album in early 2011.
