I’m frankly stumped and appalled that Atlanta, Georgia based band Phantom Electric’s latest track Friends isn’t already being blasted through BBC Radio on a Sunday afternoon.
The Indie Rock MASTERPIECE ‘Friends’ has the same allure as bands such Jaws, Peace, Drenge and the Maccabee’s with all of its own unique pioneering glory. Vocals curtesy of Nick Whitson have the same evocative edge as some of my favourite 90’s Alt Rock idols, they’re ethereal, yet arrestingly beautiful at the same time. It’s the atmospheric aura that the 5-piece band create is what really makes this track such a pleasure to listen to. The tranquil trickling harmonies build up to create a rich cacophony which rings to the reverberation of the guitar. It’s once you really tune into the lyrics of the band’s debut track when the power of the sound really hits you, the heart-wrenching lyrics somehow pertain warmth, and an infinite amount of sweet resonance.
