Mannequin Records is simply elated to present the debut 12'' EP from Phantom Love, a mysterious Kosmische act from Southern Europe.
Emerging from the majestic and fiercely sun-trapped lands of the Old Continent, Phantom Love takes you along a dazing journey through a spectral yet dreamy haze of spacey psychedelia.
Drawing inspiration and guidance from the ever-revered mitt European and Mediterranean tradition of Kraut and Cosmic rock, Phantom Love manages to encapsulate and transcend the formulas normally associated with these genres.
A retro-futuristic feast for the ears, a production that is equally analogue and digital, haunting and exotic, Phantom Love’s debut is a sonic sculpture of obsessive arpeggios and reverb-drenched strings.
Against this arcane melodic canvas, tribal and shape-shifting drums structures fight and discipline the liquid interplay and superimposition of cymbals and cowbells delays.
*Limited Edition of 300 copies with artwork by Giandomenico Carpentieri.
Strongly recommended to fans of Brian Eno, Klaus Schulze, John Carpenter, Carter Tutti, Stellar Om Source, Harald Grosskopf, Tangerine Dream, Beak, Zombie Zombie.
"Mysterious Italian, Phantom Love, has gifted us the truly epic Lotus, from their self titled EP. All the throbbing bloodlines are here, a genealogy that connects Carpenter to Mann; Detroit to Rome. Remorselessly urgent, the synths and drum machines grip the road in ways the Drive soundtrack could only dream. If Hotline Miami had a monochrome-blue driving subgame this would be the endlessly looped score." (20JazzFunkGreats)
