Phantogram released their third EP, Nightlife, on Tuesday, offering up a fresh batch of six spacey new songs for the masses.
A follow up to last year’s Eyelid Movies, the New York duo streamed the album on their official Facebook page beginning in October.
In a piece from Spin, Josh Carter and Sarah Barthel each tried remembering how the songs were created.
For example, Carter said the track “16 Years” was in the works for a while.
“This was a song that I wrote as a demo a few years ago, having recorded myself just singing gibberish in falsetto on the road,” said Carter. ”I ended up translating that into something that made a lot of sense to me. Sometimes, if I’m writing a song, or if we’re writing a song together, we’ll often sing gibberish because it seems to spawn ideas. It gets the juices flowing in a way.”
