Phantasia are from New York and feature a line up of Tara Atefi (Vocals), Grace Scott (Guitar), Emma Hendry (Keyboard), Gary Canino (Bass), Dylan Cameron (Drums) and Corey Evans (he plays drums on portions of the new album).
That new album will be titled Ghost Stories and it's out on July 22nd on Beach Impediment Records.
Now given that Corey Evans has featured in bands such as GLOSS, Rik And The Pigs, Stiff Love & Clock Of Time, you might cast a glance at the cover of Ghost Stories and assume you're in for something a little on the heavy side.
In reality, you'll be treated to 9 tracks of "nightmare pop" which mix post punk with catchy C-86. Three tracks from the album are streaming here : https://phantasia.bandcamp.com/album/ghost-stories
This is my favourite of the songs so far and the reason I mentioned C-86. It's really rather dreamy and it's called All The Flowers...
Wasted another summer walking down the gutter. We had always suffered in denial of one another. I stayed by your side, found you with flowers you denied. Hiding in your room buried deep, checking your pulse while you sleep. If you die, I die. I stayed by your side, found you with flowers you denied. Hiding in your room buried deep, checking your pulse while you sleep. We had always suffered. If you die, I die. This world is no fun just as one.
