Good Afternoon Playtonics,
I hope you are enjoying one of our most prolific days in the last few weeks. Today we posted some music news as well as philosophy news, but now I present to you “Getting To Know You: Phantogram,” an exclusive interview with Phantogram! Last month we featured Phantogram in our segment on rising bands called “Introducing” and additionally I posted my review of the band’s show at NYC’s Mercury Lounge.
Phantogram (learn more about this word here) consists of duo Josh Carter and Sarah Barthel. While their sound incorporates many contemporary influences and current trends such as drum loops and dreamy electronic accompaniment, their music is dynamic and their melodies are quite catchy. Recently, the Saratoga Springs, NY based band released their debut album Eyelid Moves on Barsuk Records.
With the generous help of Barsuk Records’ PR cordinator Grant McCallum, I was able to get in touch with Phantogram to spark a truly playtonic dialogue. After the jump find out about how the band constructs their live shows, their favorite member of the Beatles, and more!
