MUSIC NEWS: PHNTMS Release New Single ‘Honesty’
Rock quartet PHNTMS have released their latest single Honesty, a taste of their forthcoming six-track EP.
The band are inspired by everyday situations, relationships, and growing up, with an aim to create an easily identified feeling with their listeners.
“I think as songwriters, we try to capture these moments and make them as detailed as possible,” explains vocalist Alyssa Gambino. “We’ll always be fascinated by the fact we can freeze these moments…”
With half of the band identifying as queer, PHNTMS also hope to reach out to and support the LGBTQA+ community.
“We openly talk about lesbian relationships in our music and we want to bring hope to anyone who is in the closet and doesn’t feel safe coming out,” says drummer Gene Murphy. “Whether you are out as queer or not, your identity is valid and if our music helps you escape heteronormativity for a brief moment.”
