Any fans of Portishead will want to prick up their ears for the pensively captivating feat of Alt Electronic Pop “Phantom Fear” from the up and coming artist Black Marks.
Phantom Fear is just one of the tracks which you’ll find in the debut album “All But Defeated”. With the quality of the production and the seamlessly evocative nature of the soundscapes, there’s little indication that Black Marks are fresh from their inception.
Phantom Fear wouldn’t feel out of place on any dystopian film OST. From hauntedly arresting vocals to cutting semi-orchestral arrangements, Phantom Fear offers everything that you could possibly ask for from a single and more. Faultless rhythm, striking emotion, and expressive lyrics are all reasons why you’ll quickly come to appreciate the artist’s distinctive approach to orchestrating melancholic hits.
You can check out Black Marks’ track Phantom Fear along with the rest of their debut album by heading over to Spotify now.
