Whether you download Phantogram’s new EP on iTunes, or listen through Pandora, Youtube or Spotify, this new release is worth a listen. Personally, I’ve enjoyed Phantogram since I heard their first EP Nightlife in 2011. The duo from Saratogo Springs, NY, includes Sarah Barthel (vocals, keys, samples) and Josh Carter (vocals, guitar, samples) and formed in 2007.
In 2010, the release of their debut album, Eyelid Movies, was widely praised by many adoring fans and the press. Their music is a mix of organic and electronic sounds, with swirling guitar, spaced-out synths, and chopped up samples and rhythms. Phantogram’s song Lights is a part of the “Hunger Games Catching Fire” soundtrack. The beat influenced, indie-pop group not only has a new EP, their upcoming album, Voices, is shaping up to be one of the most anticipated albums of the new year.
On February 28, Phantogram made its major-label full-length debut with Voices, the follow-up to this year's self-titled EP. Lucky individuals who pre-ordered Voices on iTunes in February also received an instant download of their new single "Fall in Love."
