Confession time. I just heard this song on my favorite guilty pleasure TV show, Shadowhunters. Over the years, the biggest influence on my taste in music absolutely has to be the TV shows that I’ve watched (thanks Gossip Girl!). There are so many bands that I may have never heard of if I hadn’t heard their music on one of my favorite shows
I wish I could remember how I first came across Surfer Blood because that moment must have been magical. All I know is that the song ‘Floating Vibes’ was the first song I ever heard by them and it remains one of my favorite songs to this day.
The first time I ever heard a Phantogram song was at a Phantogram show.
I was at Lollapalooza with my best friend, who was already a big fan and wanted to see them. Their singer, Sarah Barthel, was dressed in all black despite the ninety degree heat and sported a jet black bob with blunt bangs. Their songs had a huge, heavy beat with airy vocals and catchy hooks. I instantly loved them.
This is the first single from their new album, Three, due out September 16th. I can’t wait to hear the rest of the album and I’ll definitely be seeing them when they come to New York in October.
