Last month Phantogram treated us to "You Don't Get Me High Anymore," the first single from their forthcoming third LP, Three. The second track, "Run Run Blood," was revealed today, and it's an equally confident and powerful sounding glimpse of what's to come.
Following their Big Boi Big Grams collab, the duo again call on some friends for help, this time in the form of some "creepy horns" contributed by none other than The Antlers. Those horns are a highlight of the mix that also includes Sarah Barthel and Josh Carter trading vocals through various effects and a continuance of their increasingly industrial leanings. In a statement to Stereogum, Carter explains it's "about the sad state of the world we live in today. It feels like the blind leading the blind sometimes.”
"Run Run Blood" will likely be given its live debut at Phantogram's sold out Lollapalooza aftershow tomorrow, while Three is out 9/16 via Republic. Listen and see the rest of the tour dates below:
