Bluephoria might be a new name on your music radar, but rest assured this is a young and exciting rising rock act. Formed just two years ago, the band’s single “Kaleidoscpe” is a solid encapsulation of their sound – merging almost alt-pop songwriting with classic rock – and we think you’ll dig it immensely.
The band has also announced their signing to EDGEOUT Records, which will take the band (they’re all 21 years of age or younger) to the next level. Get acclimated with “Kaleidoscope” below.
“My band and I are super excited to join the Universal family and embark on this journey with EDGEOUT,” said LaFreniere. “My band and I look forward to the great music we hope and plan to make. We can’t wait to learn more about the industry and really hit the ground running in terms of going through development with EDGEOUT, writing new music, and hopefully, by the end of this year, playing shows again.”
Founded at the University of Oregon in Spring 2019, Bluphoria’s unique mix of alternative pop and psychedelic southern rock quickly gained popularity in Eugene, Portland and the Bay Area. Its first single and video “Kaleidoscope” created quite a stir, having amassed over 20,000 plays on streaming services. The follow-up EP Alone and its single of the same name continued its streaming streak, creating an even larger stir. With the release of their double A-sided single “Something More” / “Conscientious Debauchery,” the band gained buzzband status, playing shows in Eugene’s biggest venues including WOW Hall and selling out clubs and college shows in the area.
