Last November we took an in depth look at the rising phenomena that is The Phantoms. We called their music Anthems Of Our Time, as it is so very on point, so right there in the moment – encapsulating all that is now. We stand by what we said. They’re an immensely talented band, and when we heard they were releasing a brand new single, we were keen to get it switched on and turned up loud. The good news is – they didn’t disappoint.
Lost is an absolute stunner of a track, the guitar parts collide and captivate throughout, those riffs wash over you, that dream-like vocal reverb and the everlasting strength behind it – all adds up and overwhelms you as listen. Everything works together in the track, the vocal is as powerful as it ever was, yet still doused in that alternate universe kind of sound; that anthemic feeling of urgency.
More importantly, perhaps, the melody is outstanding – the chorus hits, and you want it louder, you need it to have as much impact as possible; you need it to be a live performance, in fact. It’s big, brilliant, and so superbly performed. I love the way The Phantoms craft their songs, even more so the way they express and perform them. The music never grows tiresome, in fact it somehow just gets better and better.
Well worth a listen. Socials are at the bottom, and in the meantime – check it out for yourself, this is Lost..
