“You’ve got a mouthful of diamonds… and a pocketful of secrets”
We’ve been hearing this album, Phantogram, at our desk again and again. Singer Sarah D. Barthel has that soothing hypnotic voice, and a nice rapport with bandmate Joshua M. Carter.
Sarah’s lyrical style is direct and frank, she doesn’t mince her words. The duo messes with smoky beats and synthesizers tinged with a little raw touch. The video for the tune is set in some mysterious location, a cabin set in a Lynch film with no sense of time and space. The song and visual narrative come together quite naturally.
We are feelin this band at the moment… so we decided to put them in our rotation playlists at The Standard, Miami.
