Phantogram — the New York-born duo of Josh Carter and Sarah Barthel — has continued for almost a decade to change the zeitgeist by consistently challenging it with their signature blend of hard-hitting beats, guitar-driven dark psychedelia, and electronic pop. Since the arrival of 2010’s debut album Eyelid Movies and its two successors Voices and Three, the band has amassed nearly half-a-billion streams, achieved two Gold-Certified singles in the form of “Fall In Love” and “When I’m Small,” and become a festival staple while headlining sold out shows worldwide.
Their 2016 third full-length, Three, reached career-high positions on the Billboard Top 200 chart (#9) and Billboard Top Albums Sales chart (#5), as the lead single “You Don’t Get Me High Anymore” climbed the alternative radio charts. The album was also met with critical acclaim from Pitchfork, Billboard, The New York Times, Entertainment Weekly, People, Vogue, New York Magazine, The FADER, Stereogum, NYLON, PAPER and many others.
Three was completed in the wake of Barthel’s sister’s passing due to suicide, a shattering event which brought suicide prevention awareness to the forefront of the band’s consciousness and has informed their charitable giving and community outreach ever since – as they’ve done on past tours, one dollar from the purchase of each ticket to Phantogram’s upcoming headline performances will be donated to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
