The long awaited new single by Phantom is released today!
The song can be streamed / bought from the following services:
￼Phantom is the haunting project of singer-songwriter Hanna Toivonen and ￼producer/sound designer Tommi Koskinen, who have been creating cinematic, jazz- ￼influenced trip-hop and electronic-inflected alternative pop since 2012.
New single ‘Shadows’ possesses the distinctive charm and depth of their previous releases but also marks a progression in the band’s sound, with Toivonen’s captivating vocals fluttering above lurking, sinister synth tones.The track builds and morphs as Koskinen’s drum patterns gradually become more prominent, before the tension is released with a vibrant flurry of keys and sampled patterns.
The pair’s first release was the beautiful single, ‘Scars’, the video for which has now amassed over 175,000 views on Youtube, and was featured on the Majestic Casual channel. Its success swiftly led to them performing at a variety of festivals around Europe, including Flow Festival in their native Finland and Ireland’s Electric Picnic, along with playing coveted support slots for both Bonobo and SOHN in Helsinki. Their single ‘Kisses’ only furthered the outfit’s reputation, earning the respect of The xx, as well as that of Edith Bowman, who featured the track as the “Blogger’s Choice” on her BBC Radio 1 Review show, saying it made her feel like she’d been “hugged by the sky”.
