PHANTOGRAM’S universally applauded duo, Sarah Barthel and Josh Carter, have been crafting their own blend of genre bending music since 2007 when the longtime friends first formed their group in the small city of Saratoga Springs in upstate NY.
Known for their innovative music style- melding electronic, melodic indie rock with hip hop leaning beats & samples- the band independently released music and toured incessantly before the debut of their breakthrough album, VOICES, in 2014.
Upon its release, VOICES, which was co-produced with John Hill (M.I.A., Santigold), achieved unanimous critical acclaim. The Associated Press hailed it “an epochal album, a generational capstone that will reside in playlists for a generation to come,” and SPIN named it one of the “50 Best Albums Of 2014”. The album made an impressive #1 debut on iTunes’ Alternative Chart and #5 on iTunes’ Top Album Chart. VOICES also yielded the multi-format anthem “Fall In Love,” which landed in the Top 5 at Alternative Radio and Top 25 at AAA. It was also the #4 “Most-Shazamed Rock and Indie Song of 2014”.
The band has since been on the road and collaborating with an impressive group of artists across the music spectrum, including The Flaming Lips, Miley Cyrus and Big Boi – the latter of whom formed a new group with Phantogram, BIG GRAMS, resulting in the release of a self-titled debut album (featuring its own collaborations with Skrillex and Run the Jewels, and a psychedelic animated short film project with Adult Swim) in 2015.
This year, Barthel and Carter have performed a handful of summer festival dates with Big Grams, including Governor’s Ball and Bonnaroo, with the likes of Lollapalooza and Outside Lands on the horizon, before releasing their highly anticipated new Phantogram album.
With a robust early following and organic online buzz, Giraffage offers a fresh, sample-rich sound of dreamy pop beats, sensual synths and lush experimental electronica. The creation of 23 year-old Charlie Yin of San Francisco, Giraffage is an exciting new producer with an intuitive grasp of modern music manipulation, delivering beats that are dripping with vibes and accessible to all.
Starting his musical journey in high school as a drummer for an eclectic array of bands from metal to indie rock, Yin turned to guitar and then soon moved to electronic music production on illegally downloaded software. Inspired by such pioneers as Daft Punk and Boards of Canada, Giraffage is a true bedroom producer that started playing out only after gaining solid traction for his music online. Sending out his first album for free to various music blogs and online publications, Giraffage quickly found an ardent fan following for his hazy and seductive style.
Early supporters of Giraffage's screwed-down soundscapes, sample-based pop music and future R&B include such publications as Pitchfork, XLR8R, The Fader and Gorilla vs. Bear. After an extensive tour with the artist xxyyxx through Europe last year, Giraffage has big plans for 2013, with numerous upcoming performance dates including a Brooklyn Vegan showcase at SXSW and at Los Angeles' world-renowned Low End Theory club night. Considered one to watch by industry insiders and the online underground, Giraffage's newest release "Needs" is out for free February 26 on Alpha Pup Records.
