I have a major crush on Phantogram. No one can make darkness sound so beautiful. They just released their 4 song EP today. They’re releasing a full album soon, but not sure when it’ll be released. Stream one of the songs from the new EP below and stream another song here.

Give me a reason to stay alive
I’ve got the feeling we’re gonna die

Phantogram – “Black Out Days”

Phantogram never disappoints me. I first discovered them when they opened up for School of Seven Bells a few years ago, I think it was 2009. It was before people discovered their brilliance and blew up. I had the privilege of meeting them, they were as sweet as can be. I love to watch bands get the attention I think they deserve, but at the same time I’m sad that I probably won’t ever get the chance to walk right up to them again.

Can’t wait for the new LP coming out soon! They are touring this fall (see dates below). I’m looking forward to seeing them in Atlanta this Halloween!

I’m lovin’ this new track, I’m listening to it on repeat as I write this. Love you, Phantogram!!
