Sharing the crown with other New York-based, synth pop duos like School of Seven Bells, Sleigh Bells and Purity Ring, PHANTOGRAM, Josh Carter (vocals, guitars) and Sarah Barthel (vocals, keyboards), are carving quite a reputation for themselves in the electronic scene. Their 2011 release “Night Moves” is a catchy variant on the sometimes too abstract “blips and blops” that have emerged out of the Big Apple. Instead they deliver a clever blend of hip hop, 80’s and pop. Today they released a new single called “Black Out Days” and although the production is tight, it’s not one of my favorites, but it’s still a worthy track and worth a listen. They still haven’t released word on when we can expect another album, but I think it’s safe to assume, they are in the lab right now.
