Top Tracks: Wons Phreely – Stars

As frustrating as it can be to find an artist that is hard to pin down and pigeonhole, it can also bring with it an intriguing sense of the uncertain. Having moved from Sydney to LA, Wons Phreely (real name Justin Wonsly) has combined his home grown Aussie absurdity with slick Californian production. The driving synth rhythm of his latest single ‘Stars’ is reminiscent of Bruce Springsteen and Phil Collins era Genesis with just a subtle hint of Beck in Justin’s vocals. There a many little moments in this deceptively simple song which you could attribute to a wide range of influences, but none of those come close to really summing him up. With his new backing band The Horses injecting some fresh energy into proceedings it will be interesting to see what awaits on the horizon.
