Phantogram

Electronic rock duo Phantogram came out of nowhere in early 2010 with the release of their debut album Eyelid Movies, which was widely lauded by press from Pitchfork to Alternative Press, Spin to NPR. Founders Josh Carter (vocals, guitar, samples) and Sarah Barthel (vocals, keys, samples) have replaced their previous day jobs with new careers touring the world and living on the road.

Phantogram releases new single to benefit American Foundation for Suicide Prevention

In 2016, while working on what would eventually become their album Three, Phantogram's Sarah Barthel and Josh Carter were crushed when they suddenly lost Sarah's sister (and Josh's childhood friend) Becky to suicide.

Months later, returning to the studio to start picking up the pieces to finish the album, they resumed work on a song they'd begun building around samples of the classic Al Green songs "I'm Still in Love with You" and "Livin' for You" — and which the loss of Becky had imbued with new meaning for the duo. But working on the song still proved too painful, and the song was tabled.

This spring — following a lengthy healing process during which Barthel and Carter began to speak out regularly at shows and in interviews as part of their efforts to raise awareness about suicide prevention and to destigmatize mental illness — they came back to the song, and the beautiful recording stands as the latest piece of their ongoing campaign for the cause.

New original track "Someday" honors the memory of those lost to suicide, and the grief and hope carried every day by family and friends left behind; the B-side is a tribute to Sparklehorse's Mark Linkous, a formative influence for the band. 18 May 2018
