Phantasia "Ghost Stories"


Pastels by candlelight, a spilled bottle, cigarettes burnt to the filter, the outline of a face being tanned by a flickering neon light, the vinyl debut from New York, NY's Phantasia is hard to get out of your head. Elements of deathrock, pure pop, punk, and rock 'n' roll are all here fighting for space amongst lilting synths, reverb-soaked guitars, and muscular drumming. Recorded and mixed by Sasha Stroud, this captures both the spirit of their influences - The Feelies, Alaska Y Dinarama, Bruce Springsteen, and Pylon - but holds nothing back in terms of what these songs are capable of sounding like in the 21st century.
