Meet Finnish electronic duo Phantom.
Fans include The xx, and now Indietronica.
New track ‘Over’ is about the dangers of complacency in your life, which ultimately leads to anxiety which you then cannot escape from.
It was written by Hanna Toivonen whilst waiting for a twisted ankle to recover, it features the duo’s trademark dark and ominous sound. Repetitive synths, samples and echoing percussion provide a backdrop for her clear, powerful voice, with producer and sound engineer Tommi Koskinen’s drum patterns taking on an almost tribal feel as the song builds to an overwhelming crescendo.
It is out now via VILD Recordings.
