“Nightlife is kind of an extension of the whole process of making and touring behind Eyelid Movies, and it feels in a lot of ways like the completion of what we were doing with the songs on that album,” says Carter, adding that “the two [records] really go together in our minds. Nightlife couldn’t have been written anywhere other than in clubs and hotel rooms during this experience we’ve been having for the last year or two.”
Although the lyrical and sonic themes of the new recordings are in keeping with those of the previous album, Barthel notes “It’s just amazing how much our lives have changed in such a short period of time, and how all that change has made us able to focus in on what we want to be doing musically. We’re really excited about these new songs, especially playing them live, and Nightlife has definitely pushed the energy of the band back into that great feeling of working on making something new.”
In the whirlwind year and a half following the release of Eyelid Movies, Phantogram (along with touring drummer Tim Oakley) have been on the road almost constantly, building a well-deserved reputation as a tremendous live band. They’ve grown from supporting diverse tours with early supporters like The xx, The Antlers, and Minus the Bear to playing nearly every major North American festival (Coachella, Outside Lands, Sasquatch, Treasure Island, Lollapallooza, Bumbershoot, and others) to regularly headlining sold-out shows on their own. Along the way, they’ve stopped for appearances on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel Live! and drawn praise from audiences, critics, and fellow musicians from ?uestlove to Fitz and the Tantrums, from Kings of Leon to Big Boi.
Until The Ribbon Breaks
Pete Lawrie Winfield P.K.A Until The Ribbon Breaks is a British DJ, Producer, Singer, Songwriter and Visual Artist who's music embraces an old school passion for clever writing and the slicing together of sounds, samples and lyrics.
Having first caught everyone's attention earlier this year when he unleashed his self-made video for 'Pressure' on youtube. His powerful, dark, apocalyptic pop, tinged with infectious RnB style prompted critical acclaim from some of the biggest names in the music industry.
This year, as well as working on his own upcoming album and collaborative projects with EL –P, Burns and The Weeknd, a number of artists from 'Of Monsters and Men,' to 'Tegan and Sara,' and 'Laura Mvula' have called on Pete's remixing talents to work together on new projects earning him acclaimed reviews in key online powerhouses such as, Jay Z's 'Life and Times,' 'Pitchfork' and 'This is Fake DIY' but to name a few.
Recently signed to Universal Republic Records Pete's unique talent to award his audience a unique sensory experience with production skills not unlike that of previous genre hopping masters; Beck, Prince, Primal Scream and Massive Attack has the platform it requires to make 2014 a very exciting year.
Until The Ribbon Breaks first EP is due for release in Sept 2013 followed by a debut album in early 2014.
"Comprised of New York based duo known simply as Holly and Andy, Weeknight create the sort of languid, obfuscous pop that swirls slightly menacingly through your eardrums. The interlocking male-female vocals contain both beauty and enigmatic characteristics, whether it be the bass heavy Devil or the glitchy Dark Light (Warrior), the crackling guitar lines and other-worldly lyrics elevate Weeknight above many of their synth-led contemporaries. Whilst it's clearly lacking big budget production, the Depeche Mode vibes are prominent throughout, as are the loosely scattered shoegaze percussion sections. All in all, this debut EP entitled Dark Dark Lights is an extremely accomplished trio of tracks." - Crack In The Road
