Phantogram – “Cruel World”
Slinky synthpop duo Phantogram are getting ready to release their new album Three, which already sounds like a huge leap forward. We’ve posted their great early single “You Don’t Get Me High Anymore,” as well as its follow-up “Run Run Blood.” And today, Zane Lowe debuted “Cruel World,” a song the group played at a Lollapalooza after-show a couple of weeks ago, on Beats 1 Radio. It’s a big, meaty pop song with some beautifully oblique production — like what might happen if Purity Ring tried to make arena-rock. Listen to it below.
Three is out 10/7 on Republic.
