Phern is a new band consisting of members of Moss Lime, Each Other, Sheer Agony, and Soft Cone. Their debut album is out Nov. 25th but you can listen to this advance single “Pebble”. It’s a quirky and hesitant little psych pop number. Bouncy and fun, but what does it mean?

“Pebble is a song about being a pedestrian, day-to-day in Montreal avoiding death,” the band explains to the Fader. “We are all afraid of dying so we drink a lot of smoothies. Right now we are in Halifax and cars are nice. We realized the song would have never existed if we were living here. ‘The pebble in my brain’ is the fear that seeps into our mind just after a close encounter with a crazy driver.”
