Phantogram return with powerful offering "In A Spiral"

09 October 2019, 16:01 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

NYC duo Phantogram are back with new single "In A Spiral".

"In A Spiral" is taken from their forthcoming project, and arrives after August's "Mister Impossible" and May's "Into Happiness".

Sarah Barthel of Phantogram says of the new offering, ""In A Spiral" started from a beat that Josh had in his back pocket for quite some time, which I had gravitated to immediately and written some vocal ideas for. But the song was waiting for the right moment to reveal itself to us... We threw it on at the last minute while we were preparing to go record in Joshua Tree at the magical Rancho de la Luna with our friend Boots, and once we got out there everything started to fall into place."

Josh Carter adds, "I started chopping up sample patterns, and we all messed around with a few analogue synths till we found the right vibe... We finished up the track in LA with Andrew Dawson. There’s a lot of energy in this song with dark, interesting wordplay. An inspiring feeling of making music in the desert. Beauty in desolation."

The duo are yet to follow up their 2016 album Three.

Phantogram's new single "In A Spiral" is out now.
