New York’s Phantogram — that’s Saratoga Springs, NY, not NYC — has signed to Barsuk Records and will release Eyelid Movies in February of 2010. Phantogram’s music is filled with synth lines fit for shoegaze, electronic beats that hint of a hip hop influence, and lovable pop vocals.
Songs like “Mouthful Of Diamonds” find a place somewhere between Ratatat (the two groups both hail from SS, NY) with vocals and M83 on downers. “Running From The Cops” has vocals you could almost call eerie. “When I’m Small” returns to the pop vocals, but digs in with trip-hop beats. Phantogram is definitely a band to keep an eye on; Eyelid Movies is already becoming one of 2010’s most anticipated albums!
