Dazed vocals and mystique-filled guitar lines enter immediately... The title-bearing rise is gorgeous; the vocals exude a sweetly melodic composure with a hazy power-pop edge... The lush verses and replay-inducing chorus assemble for a blissful track from Phase Materia. - Obscure Sound
'Spectrums' recounts the ecstatic transmutation of the Human psyche as the listener is transported to the 'Golden Era' of psychedelic rock. The song describes a dream of the Telesterion - an ancient mystery school wherein initiates would be dissolved and reborn in a transcendent, entheogenic ritual.
"Phase Materia is a psychic rock band currently resonating in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Dissolving and congealing with the world around them, the group was formed by brothers Connor and Austin Smith as a recording project which came alive in the spring of 2019...For such a young band, Phase Materia’s approach to their craft is undeniable. Their personal ethic is reflected in the mantra: 'The Great Work can be done, but is never finished.'" - Vents Magazine
"Blending elements of neo-psych rock with lavish, dream pop melodies, Phase Materia attracts listeners like hallucinatory moths. Their orchestral keyboards swirl around intricate guitars, while a harmonic bass leaps from the rhythmic scaffolding." - Jammerzine
"The band used many ‘60s recording techniques and equipment on the album, most importantly a drum-miking technique used extensively by English recording engineer Glyn Johns..." - Lebtown
