A Phantogram Concert Isn’t Just About the Music
Noirish electro-rockers Phantogram strive to complement their sound with striking visuals, making spectacle an integral part of their live performances.
Phantogram will make you pay attention. When I saw them open for The Antlers back in 2010, I was struck more by the visual aesthetics than I was by their brand of nightshaded electro-rock. Now touring in support of their latest album, Voices—a significant step forward sonically—the band promises a live show to suit the larger venues they’re now headlining. They’ve even hired a new lighting designer, just one of many steps they’ve taken to ensure the spectacle doesn’t end with the music.
