"It turns out all that hype might have been appropriate…one moment it’s a snarling synth-rock banger a la Radiohead’s “Myxomatosis,” the next it’s an emotional computer ballad like Nicki Minaj’s “Truffle Butter” beat bawling its eyes out” - STEREOGUM
“Phantogram perfectly capture those feelings of desperation, hunger, and boredom, wrapping it all into a track that packs an unexpected punch” - MTV
"Hypnotic" - ROLLING STONE
NY indie-electronica duo Phantogram – comprised of Sarah Barthel and Josh Carter - have premiered the video to new single “You Don’t Get Me High Anymore” on Fader. The track, which has already had 2.5 million Spotify streams, impacts on September 16 and is the first single to be taken from Phantogram’s new album ‘Three’, also out September 16 on new UK label Fiction Records.
The video was shot in Bombay Beach on the shores of The Salton Sea in California, and is directed by acclaimed filmmaker Grant Singer, who has previously directed promos for Sky Ferreira, Skrillex, Ariel Pink, Little Dragon, Sleigh Bells, Foxygen and The Weeknd.
“You Don’t Get Me High Anymore is about the loneliness in superficial relationships and that feeling of not being able to find happiness in places that were once so easy to come across,” says Phantogram’s Carter. “The desolation in Bombay Beach represents that feeling really well. The area was once a promising vacation spot before the droughts and now it’s a ghost town. We were excited that Grant picked that spot, he understood the aesthetic of the song right off the bat and ran with it.”
Since the release of their 2014 US break-though album Voices, Phantogram have trekked across the globe playing live shows and festival dates, contributed features to everyone from A-Trak to Miley Cyrus and been sampled by Kanye West, The Game and A$AP Rocky, as well as releasing their debut BIG GRAMS LP with good friend and musical partner in crime, Big Boi of Outkast. The New York bred duo made writing stops at home and in Atlanta before picking back up in Los Angeles to record Three. Carter and Barthel shared duties on production and vocals, melding elements of rock, pop, hip-hop and electronic. The resulting sound leans darker and more psychedelic yet with some of the brightest and most introspective pop melodies they’ve delivered to date, truly making them genre-defying artists for the 21st century.
Phantogram will be touring across the United States and Canada in the autumn before reaching Europe in November. The UK leg includes dates in Brighton, Manchester, Glasgow and a show at London’s Heaven on Wednesday 16th November.

Kali Uchis' video for "Only Girl," featuring Vince Staples and The Internet's Steve Lacy and produced by Kaytranada, premieres today. Watch the video, directed by Uchis and co-directed by Valentine Street, here:
"I was inspired by fake love, Edie Sedgwick, Nancy Sinatra and Calle 13," says Uchis. "The video speaks on how disposable/replaceable 'lovers' are treated and the things we will say/do out of loneliness."
Uchis is currently in the studio finishing her debut album, following a whirlwind 2015 that found her touring North America with Leon Bridges, releasing her critically-acclaimed project Por Vida, starring in the Nick Knight-directed acoustic video for her song "Loner," directing videos for "Ridin Round," "Loner" and "Rush," starring in a campaign for British designer Sophia Webster and much more.
Twenty-two-year-old Uchis was born in Pereira, Colombia, raised in Alexandria, VA and is now based in Los Angeles, CA. Uchis has released two much-lauded projects, 2013's Drunken Babble and Por Vida, featuring production from Diplo, Tyler, The Creator, Kaytranada, BADBADNOTGOOD and more. Further collaborations include work with Major Lazer, Snoop Dogg, Tory Lanez, Tyler, The Creator and more.
