Lauded as an experimental and alternative band, and one that’s never been married to a particular genre, Phantogram—comprised of lifelong friends Josh Carter and Sarah Barthel—have continued to change the zeitgeist for almost a decade by consistently challenging it with their signature blend of hard-hitting beats, guitar-driven dark psychedelia and electronic pop.
Phantogram has announces the release of their highly anticipated fourth studio album, Ceremony, set for release on March 6th. The duo celebrates the announce by dropping “Pedestal,” from the forthcoming project. Listen below…
Ceremony marks a rebirth and embodies a dark, but hopeful, chapter for the band. The album is the first project they made entirely around Los Angeles, spending a week at Rancho de la Luna studio while recording the bulk of the album at Sarah’s new home studio, dubbed “Harmonie West,” (previous albums were made at Harmony Lodge in Upstate New York). Ceremony features Phantogram’s recently released singles, “In A Spiral,” “Mister Impossible” and “Into Happiness,” as well as eight additional tracks—see the full track list below.
Since the arrival of 2010’s debut release, Eyelid Movies, the duo has amassed nearly half-a-billion streams, achieved two Gold-Certified singles in the form of “Fall In Love” and “When I’m Small,” headlined sold out shows worldwide, become a festival staple and toured with artists including The xx, Muse, M83, Alt-J and more.
