On July 29th, we are putting on another Jukely show with our friends at Popscene, and this time, it’s with electronic house duo Phantoms at Rickshaw Stop in San Francisco with support from Bloodboy and DJ Aaron Axelsen.
Phantoms is the production duo of Vincent Pergola and Kyle Kaplan create sophisticated arrangements and tension-filled pop that reminds listeners of the sound’s nocturnal foundations. Their songs evoke a world rich in subterranean settings, mysterious characters, and desperate situations. Phantoms is for remembering that it’s called nightlife for a reason. “as denizens of the night ourselves, we take a purposeful and constant front row to the impact of the social dynamics of nightlife in people’s everyday being,” says Kaplan. “It is fun, but there always a unique story to everyone’s personal journey through the night.”
After a self-titled EP released on Skrillex’s OWSLA label in 2013, Phantoms’ sound has continued to progress. They’ve recently released “Voyeur” and “Broken Halo,” two new tracks from their forthcoming full-length global debut on Republic/Casablanca/FAMILY records. The album was recorded during sessions that stretched into the early AM hours at the Downtown L.A. studio and artist development outfit, FAMILY, which plays home to a melting pot of ultimately diverse artists who constantly strive to define what’s next in music and push each other and their audiences to unchartered territory. Phantoms uncanny ability to reinvent the norm leaves them poised for a breakout 2016.
