Somephoenics was founded in 2005 and we always get asked what is the meaning of our bandname. So we thought let’s write a short blog article about our name.
We know that name isn’t very easy and a main problem is the spelling and writing of it. Here are some examples how people sometimes write our bandname:
- some phoenics (nearly right put we prefer it as 1 word)
- somephonics or some phonics (would be also very nice)
- somephoenix or some phoenix
- somephonix or some phonix
However our bandname was inspired by the greek mythology where the phoenix was reborn and arised from the ashes. We thought it’s a cool metaphor when we founded the band 2005. Especially founder and frontman Emanuel wanted a new start where he could make better music than ever before.
And also the greek word „phōnē“ or phonetics stands for sounds – so it also means „some noises“ or „some sounds“.
