As a powerhouse electronic rock duo, Phantogram has been pushing the limits of studio production since it recorded its first batch of songs. Since 2007, the New York indie group has been prolific. In fact, Phantogram has issued more than 13 singles spanning six EPs and three albums. Eyelid Movies established the band's original style in 2010, and it was followed by 2014's Voices, which demonstrated Phantogram's versatility and featured a collaboration with Steven Drozd of The Flaming Lips ("Never Going Home"). This record reached No. 11 on the Billboard Top 200, and its third record, Third, debuted at No. 9. The 2016 release was bolstered by the popularity of a pre-release single ("You Don't Get Me High Anymore"). In addition to amassing a deep catalog of recordings, Phantogram has achieved significant recognition for its extensive history on the road. The band's full-bodied sound is replicated beautifully in live venues.
The Rise of Phantogram
Phantogram is the product of a collaboration between two friends, Sarah Barthel and Josh Carter, who have known each other since preschool. The pair reunited with the intent of making music as Charlie Everywhere in 2007. By 2009, the duo changed its name to reference an optical illusion that symbolizes humanity's own dual nature. The group's evolving infusion of pop vocals and rap instrumentation yields a unique sound. A distinctive R&B flavor is also imbued both live and in-studio. Phantogram's debut EP was self-released on the CE Records label in May 2009. The group followed up that effort the same year with another EP, Running From the Cops.
