Phantogram return fighting with the Grant Singer-directed video for ‘You Don’t Get Me High Anymore’, which is both gritty and animalistic.

Sweet bridges are soon smashed out of the sea by Sarah Barthel’s killer vocals, as she expresses feelings of loneliness amongst the Bombay Beach setting.

It’s taken from their upcoming album, ‘Three’.

Sounds like: Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Metric, Sleigh Bells, Charli XCX, ASTR

Cash + David (aka Tim Ross + Liz Lawrence) return with a darker example of their work; simply called ‘X’.

The video features even more dancing from the duo, but this time it’s less glitz and glamour and more focus on the emotional simplicity of the track.

Cash + David – Funn

Cash+David

Cash+David

Cash+David are a British electronic duo.

Like many modern electronic artists, their influences include the Beastie Boys, M83 and The Knife. We are sure there are some Nine Inch Nails influences somewhere there too.

‘Funn’ is a simple but effective juxtaposition between garage rock beats and echoey synths.

The beautifully shot video for new single ‘Funn’ is geared around a dance battle between Johnny Cash & David Bowie lookalikes.

You can purchase the single on iTunes from 10 March.

Sounds like: M83, Sleigh Bells, BOY, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Nine Inch Nails, Death Rattle

Phantogram – Fall in Love

Phantogram

Indietronica duo Phantogram will release their album ‘Voices’ on February 18th, having unveiled the featuring track ‘Fall in Love’, which will is included as a free download on each preorder of the full length, and which you can listen to below.

‘Fall in Love’ is a powerful, heavy, track, with bass-driven pulsating sounds, and crunching synths reminiscent of Sleigh Bells. The drums are at times heading down a hip-hop route, all while Sarah Barthel’s vocals drive the melody, pulling the layered sounds together in this really cool track.

Phantogram have also just released the video for ‘Black Out Days’, directed by Evan Spencer Brace. The video is a montage of epic, lustrous and sometimes frightening visuals, with a striking use of colour and light.

Sounds like; Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Metric, Sleigh Bells, Charli XCX
