"Absolutely amazing live band" - BBC Introducing
"The band have a clear grasp of their pop sensibilities and a good ear for a hook; a fact which is best reflected in the song’s killer chorus (Focus). Definitely one to keep an eye out on" - Reyt Good Magazine
Raised in Northampton but now based in London, childhood friends Phantom Isle are already beginning to generate buzz in the capital, having only been established in 2017. Slathered in sun-drenched guitars, soaring vocals and urgent synths reminiscent of Tame Impala, Mac Demarco and Mild High Club. Phantom Isle's late ’60’s vintage styling has been dragged through 80's synth pop, creating a dynamic, distinct sound for the reflective generation.
The band spent 12 months crafting their sound in a secret countryside hideout. Now soaking up North London life, Phantom Isle made their first indents on the scene in 2017 with self-released tracks Channel and Nightmare. In 2018 they released their latest single Focus with RYP Recordings, (the label who launched Honey Lung) which moved them deeper into the Dream Pop genre. The track continues to receive masses of support from BBC Introducing in Northampton, having been made their record of the week as well as receiving critical acclaim from It's All Indie, Reyt Good Magazine and Bittersweet Symphonies just to name a few.
Having added The Great Escape Festival 2018 to their list of shows and headlined The Lock Tavern in Camden, the band are set do big things in the coming year.
