Quiet as kept, Phony PPLare some of the realest folks out here, which just goes to show you what’s in a name. The 9-man collective/crew of rappers, musicians, singers, producers and DJs have been making their presence felt for some time with a unique blend of jazz, soul, hip-hop and dance—a sound they themselves describe as “grown on equal parts Jay-Z, John Coltrane and Jamiroquai”—as evidence on their debut album Phonyland. But things are truly hotting up with their next joint the (definitely very special) Nothing Special EP, slated to drop 1 week from today. Okayplayer is extremely proud to host the premiere of the first single from the project, titled “Told You So.” Stream or download below and if you are in the NYC area, do NOT fail to catch their live show at SOBs coming up on July 24th.
