We were recently very happy to inform you about the forthcoming new album from new York duo Phantogram, entitled Voices (and to be released February 18th via Republic). They already shared a cut called “Fall in Love,” but they’ve now got a new track and video to go with it. The dramatic electro flourishes of “Black Out Days” are matched to shots of animal skulls being crushed, someone being drowned in a pale white liquid, a girl with a wolf by her side, a woman smothering her face with gold paint, an old gentleman with an owl, and lots of other odd imagery I won’t pretend I can make sense of. Watch the Evan Spencer Brace-directed video for “Black Out Days” below.
Plugging away since 1999, The National finally hit mainstream success with the release of their 2010 album High Violet. Of course, this entailed their first world tour, but in the new documentary Mistaken For Strangers, it’s only the backdrop for the relationship between lead singer Matt Berninger and his younger brother Tom, who had no idea that these short videos he was shooting would turn into a public document of their troubled, if still loving brotherhood.
