Phantogram are Sarah Barthel (vocals, keyboards) and Josh Carter (vocals, guitar). They released their debut album 'Eyelid Movies' in 2009, which was widely lauded across the globe.
Having made huge waves in the US where their current album 'Voices' sits at #1 in the iTunes Alternative album chart and #5 in the main chart, Phantogram announce their first official release in the UK, their self-titled EP, available to download now via Island Records.
America have fully embraced the New York duo in recent months with Filter magazine putting them on the cover, Pulse magazine naming their self-titled EP #1 in their 2013 round up and Jimmy Fallon booking them for his Late Night show. In the interim between albums, Phantogram were also called upon by Big Boi (Outkast) to work on his second album and collaborated with The Flaming Lips on their last album.
For the UK, 'The Day You Died' and full 'Phantogram' EP mark the start of the journey into the band's new album 'Voices.' This four track EP paves the way for the new record, recorded in Los Angeles with co-producer John Hill (Santigold, MIA) which is due for release later this year.
Alongside the EP, Phantogram also announce their first UK headline tour since their sold out show at Heaven last year. After a sold out 25 date heavy US tour which included Terminal 5 in New York and a support slot for M83 at the Hollywood Bowl, Phantogram will bring their headline tour to Europe after SXSW, including performances at London's XOYO.
