Phantom Runners

Phantom Runners are a band with a vision. Their spacey, laid back indie has pop melodies in its bones and their first single of 2015, 'Laserbeam' is a perfect example.

There's eighties post-punk in Phantom Runners' chord progressions, but a funky rumble in their rhythm sections that betrays their upbeat roots.

Raw Meat: Tell us about your local music scene; what’s your favourite local venue, are there any record labels or stores we should look up, what’s the scene like where you’re from?
Phantom Runners: Brighton has a crazy music scene, there's probably more bands than people! Gotta love Green Door Store as a venue; really vibe-y when there's a big crowd. Or maybe The Haunt... or Concorde... OK we can't decide...

Name one track or band that you love from the past.
Just one?? That's not fair! Ok so we're really getting back into old school, early seventies funk, so we'll say... 'Skin I'm In' - Sly & the Family Stone.

Name one track or band that you’re loving right now.
Rhodes - 'Breathe'... gorgeous track.

Name one track or band that you think we should listening out for in the future.
Listen out for Glass City Vice, they're dropping new tunes in March and they'll make you prolapse.

What are you up to now?
Just chillin'.

What can we expect from you next?
More tunes and tours! We're getting our funding sorted to get back in the studio, we've got some sexy new sounds! And without revealing too much, we'll be out on the road again come late spring!

Our lovely hunks of Fresh Flesh have recommended some pretty amazing music, people and places for you lot. Here’s another round up of who the bands you love… love.

It took roughly 20 seconds for us to fall madly in love with Pabst and their latest single 'Skyline'. A band that takes mid 90s Britpop and put it through a grunge-grinder.

Brighton three-piece, Something Leather are poised to release their debut EP Midnight Reverie, filled with anxiety, darkness and psychedelic rock through a modern lens.
