THE PHANTOM SOUND are ready to drop their latest effort, Release Me which is the 2nd single from their self-titled debut album out in October.
The indie rock/pop band is heavily influenced by frontman Marisa’s love for the late 70s and early 80s punk and new wave movements, gaining inspiration from artists such as David Bowie, Roxy Music, Blondie, The Ramones, and Duran Duran.
She’s been fortunate to work with several excellent and accomplished artists on this album. Ken Stringfellow of the Posies, Big Star, and R.E.M. is producing the album as well as playing on it. Clem Burke, drummer of Blondie, plays on several of the tracks and Pierre DeReeder, bass player from Rilo Kiley also contributes, among other talented musicians.
Her single, Get to Me, was the top voted song on Charlie Ashcroft’s Audition Show, and has had various radio plays around the U.S. and U.K. She wrote and recorded this album in Berlin, Amsterdam, London, and Paris. Originally from Los Angeles, Marisa now lives in London.
Release Me will be out in September…but for now, check it the striking video.
