Phantom Isle - MAR V

New wave London four piece, Phantom Isle’s latest release MAR V is the perfect tune for the year we have had. An upbeat and undeniable dance tune with dark and gothic undertones, this track could be the backdrop to the society we are living through.

Dancing through the chaos through their use of infectious synth and deep, despairing lyrics, this band have tackled the upset they’ve experienced, and created a Hot Chip inspired banger. This latest track displays their range as well as their drive, a departure from their previous works and in fact, came from a rework of their much more lo-fi and softer I Am Urs, this number is much more of a floor filler.

With a simplistic yet ever effective intro, Phantom Isle have you from the off with this one, and keep you right to the very end.
