Premiere: Phantom Wave “Billows”

Brooklyn duo, Phantom Wave are preparing to release their album, Wilds on March 19th. Surviving the Golden Age is excited to premiere the album’s lead single, “Billows.”

Mixing the guitar noodling of late-90s emo like American Football with the amount of reverb usually reserved for shoegaze or post-rock bands, the track feels like it could stand alone as an instrumental only. Guitarist and lead vocalist, Ian Carpenter adds a vocal hook over the crescendo of fuzz, reverb and delay that makes the song memorable.
