Friends since their junior high school days, Josh Carter and Sarah Barthel officially formed Phantogram in 2007. With their electronic rock vibes and dance-ready indie-pop sounds, this duo has opened for well established acts ranging from Minus the Bear to Metric.
Last year, the two signed with Barsuk Records and are now label mates with many reputable bands such as Death Cab For Cutie and Nada Surf. Phantogram joins us at The Current for a live in-studio session.
Songs performed: "Bloody Palms," "All Dried Up," and "10,000 Claps."
