Phantogram Announce Splendour Side Shows

 “They coax out the bright side of darkness to create a coruscating spectacle that defines the lush, radiant pop music of today”

– Minnesota Daily

“…No doubt Phantogram will have a huge year ahead of them.”

 – MTV from SXSW

Electronic psych-pop duo Phantogram (US) are pleased to announce headline shows in Sydney and Melbourne when they head down-under for Splendour in the Grass Festival.

Creating a moody landscape of hazy-dream pop, dark atmospheres and melding rhythms, Phantogram’s otherworldly sound is beautiful juxtaposition of nocturnal synths and ethereal melodies.

With their swirling guitars, airy vocals and spacey keyboards, it’s also a sound that has shown them to be standouts, with earmark tracks off their eponymous debut album Eyelid Movies, “Mouthful of Diamonds” and “When I’m Small”, gaining them critical acclaim and syncs in shows such as Skins.

Now two albums, four EPS and a few impressive collaborations later – including with music greats such as OutKast’s Big Boi and the Flaming Lips – the New York friends are bringing their compelling style of electro to Australian shores.

With their latest release Voices released earlier this year, audiences will also be treated to new material – progressive, heavier tunes that embrace more drums, louder dynamics and compelling compositions. It’s also material that has earned them increasing kudos, having been stamped a “pull away from the pack” (Alternative Press) and “seamless blending of hip-hop influences with horror-film beats” (SPIN).

On stage, Phantogram are equally evoking, creating a nightclub ambience meets rockstar presence with their bass heavy, sometimes smooth, sometimes tormented vocals and energetic performances.

Don’t miss your chance to see them in Australia, tickets on sale 9am Friday 9May.
