LA synth-pop group Phases return to Coachella this weekend.

They just released a new EP - Afterparty - which includes a remix of "I'm In Love With My Life," a cover of Justin Bieber's "Love Yourself," and three unreleased B-sides from their debut album For Life.

Download the EP from iTunes and listen to it on Spotify. Full track listing below.

Band members are veterans of the festival, with singer Z Berg having played with her old band The Like, bassist Alex Greenwald during his time with Phantom Planet, and drummer Jason Boesel with Rilo Kiley, Bright Eyes, and more, with the band rounded out by guitarist Michael Runion. 

Following Coachella2, Phases will play a hometown show at Hollywood's The Roxy on May 18, with tickets on sale now. They will continue touring throughout 2016 in support of debut album For Life, including an additional festival slot at Hangout Music Festival as well as a tour with Maroon 5 later this year. More info and tickets for all shows are available HERE
Phases' single "I'm In Love With My Life" has reached #4 on Billboard's club chart. Their music has found fans in the likes of Amy Schumer, Sia, Mark Ronson, Adam Levine, and Jessica Alba, who sings along in a video for The Honest Company. When actress Brie Larson was asked to name a song to best describe her state of mind after winning an Academy Award she said, "So easy! 'I'm In Love With My Life' by Phases."
