Interview With Phantom
JAZZY SNAZZSTEP AND DISTORTED POP CONTORTIONS
Phantom, formally-trained jazz singer Hanna Toivonen and sound designer Tommi Koskinen, formed in early 2012. Their music combines snazzy, jazzy, twisted pop with eerie cinematic soundscapes and alternative electro-acoustic beats. They released their first EP (Scars) at SXSW in 2012 and subsequent shows – incorporating stunning real-time visuals and an original handmade midi-theremin affectionately called UFO – have provoked rapturous responses.
Phantom are currently working on their debut album and will play at The Great Escape festival in Brighton this weekend. Until then, you can hear their cover of Bon Iver’s Skinny Love in our in-site boombox. The video for Kisses is below.
