Sitting somewhere between arena rock and the classic sound of 1960’s soul singers, Philadelphia-based band PHNTMS creates music bursting with vast soundscapes and colliding instrumentation. Together, Alyssa Gambino, Adam Jessamine and Mikal Smith are bringing back rock music, while simultaneously putting their own unique stamp on it.
Inspired by everyday situations, relationships and growing up, the band aims to create a feeling with which listeners can easily identify. Gambino reveals, “I think as songwriters, we try to capture these moments and make them as detailed as possible. We’ll always be fascinated by the fact we can freeze these moments…”
With the lead singer of the band identifying as queer, PHNTMS also hope to reach out to and support the LGBTQA+ community.
PHNTMS has seen success having performed opening spots for such acts as Kings of Leon, The 1975, Bastille, Fitz & The Tantrums, Empire of the Sun, Pale Waves, Emarosa and Half Noise.
Their new single, entitled “Paper Flowers,” is all about devotion, sticking through the tough times and weathering the storms together in a romantic relationship. “Paper Flowers” features a stadium worthy rock chorus over vibrant synths and gritty guitars for a sun-drenched explosion of sound that is undeniably catchy.
The single marks their first in an upcoming EP sent for release later this year.
