by Phantom Phunk
Fast and to the point, “My Hands”, is possibly the first true single to come out of Phantom Phunk. This up-tempo foot stomper carries a seemingly calculated blend of moods, teetering between a groovy calmness and a hyperactive angst. The darker undertones in this piece however go nearly undetected next to the jubilant lead of the vocal melody. Insulated by crystal-like surf-rock guitars, the lyrics convey a confused kind of dissatisfaction—a passive divide that is just worrisome, yet still, collected enough to achieve the bipolar splits inherent in the music. Regardless, don’t let the brooding lyrics deter you from enjoying this 60’s summer jam.

About Phantom Phunk
Since their formation in 2015, Phantom Phunk has emerged as one of the most creative artists in Florida’s underground indie scene. Phantom Phunk straddles the mold of predecessors like Linkin Park and the Gorillaz, choosing to develop an animated/virtual identity rather than showcase the looks or talents of its individual members. From this notion came the growth of a concept band whose studio literacy and use of featured artists has spurred an eclectic volume of original music, ranging from Euro-Pop, to Hip-Hop, and all forms psychedelic rock and roll in between. Phantom Phunk’s agenda does not end with the music however, but continues on to other forms of original artwork including a graphic illustration series caricaturizing the Phantom’s adventures soon to debut on their website.
