Phantogram – “Black Out Days (Future Islands Remix)”
Though Phantogram’s new album, Voices, came out this past February, it’s been almost a year since we first heard the highlight “Black Out Days,” and now Future Islands have given it the remix treatment. It’s a good reminder that although Sam Herring remains such an unbelievable frontman, there has always been way more to the Baltimore synth-pop band than just him. That gets emphasized when they are given the chance to play around with a another band’s music, and here they soften Phantogram’s sounds and create something heartfelt and dramatic. Listen to it below.
Voices is out now via Republic.
