Phantogram is an American electronic rock duo based out of New York City, formed in 2007 and consisting of Josh Carter ( vocals, guitars) and Sarah Barthel (vocals, keyboards). Carter has described their music as "street beat, psych pop, with lots of rhythms, swirling guitars, spacey keyboards, echoes, and airy vocals". *
To me, the uniquely electric sound of this album echoes the mysterious yet boisterous rhythm of New York City. As such, modeling the packaging of the record after the signage of New York's subway system – which acts as the veins of the city and the pathway to its inhabitants' night life – felt incredibly appropriate.
