May 14th – Philadelphia alt-rockers PHNTMS released their latest single, ‘Towers’, a power-ballad-esque track about the expectations we face in modern life. The band, who hopes to reach out to the LGBTQ+ community through their music, says that they are inspired in their songwriting by everyday situations, and want to create a feeling with which listeners can easily identify.
‘Towers’ sounds as big and immovable as its namesake. Soaring vocal lines catapult through the chorus, supported by intense, gritty guitar work and pristine drumming. PHNTMS has been around for a while, but this new single, as well as their last single ‘Back Burner’, sees them taking on a spectacular, limitless new phase in their music.
PHNTMS has put themselves on the map with this new single, and are sure to keep delivering in the future. You can stream ‘Towers’ below or on Spotify, and follow the band on Facebook and Twitter to stay up to date on everything they have going on!
