Phantoms Release Sophomore Studio Album “This Can’t Be Everything”
Phantoms officially release their sophomore album This Can’t Be Everything out now via Foreign Family Collective. The release comes after a string of electric releases including, the title track, “This Can’t Be Everything,” “Lay It All on Me” featuring UK based singer-songwriter Jem Cooke, “Only You,” and “Firepit” with electronic producer/composer, Big Wild. The singles have received incredible support from playlisting across the globe as well as continued radio support worldwide including heavy rotation on SiriusXM (Diplo’s Revolution & BPM) + KCRW, BBC Radio 1, Kiss FM, triple j, iHeartRadio and more.
Phantoms on their new album, “‘This Can’t Be Everything’ is such a personal album for us. We knew what we wanted to make and were so lucky to have Foreign Family let us see our vision through. Much of it was written while we were stuck at home during quarantine, a bit unsure of the future. Now as we’re getting back out there and seeing people singing these songs when we play them live it feels so surreal. We can’t wait for everyone to get the full context of the music when they listen to the album as a whole. I feel like there’s a lot of yearning in this album because of that – yearning to find more in life. It’s probably our favorite music we’ve made and we couldn’t be more proud.”
Phantoms have come into their own and taken a new approach to their music following monumental personal and professional life changes and through those experiences have created some of their most dynamic and transcendent music to date. The two were officially signed to Foreign Family Collective earlier this year, (founded by electronic giant ODESZA in 2015) and since have had the freedom to explore new and exciting creative avenues with their music. Phantoms on joining Foreign Family Collective, “We’ve known the Odesza boys for close to five years now. We originally met while on tour with Big Wild and instantly became friends. But beyond our friendship, they’ve always given us such amazing guidance musically, always pushing us to do what we wanted. Then when we had some of the demos for this album sitting around, we sent it over and they loved them. It seemed like the perfect time to finally become a part of Foreign Family.”
With support from NPR, Billboard, Stereogum, LA Weekly, Earmilk + more and over 125 million streams across platforms, the duo has solidified themselves as one of the most promising acts entering 2022.
