Phantogram is influenced by a variety of sensations, aspirations, and visions, the combination of which explode into an array of atmospheric and organic sounds. Hailing from Upstate New York, the duo draws from a wide range of music—from hip-hop to trip-hop to garage rock to avant-garde. Where other bands would likely fail meshing these genres into a coherent set of sounds, Phantogram flourishes. Their songs have a three-dimensional quality, which is fitting considering the actual definition of a “phantogram” is a two-dimensional object that appears three-dimensional.


Their album, Eyelid Movies, was released on 9 February and is currently streaming over on NPR and on Lala below..
