With hints of Siouxsie Sioux and Joy Division running through it, Get To Me, the debut single from The Phantom Sound is ticking all of Ralph’s Boxes and he’s playing it on the Radio KC Indie Show next Sunday.
Working on a debut album, The Phantom Sound aka Californian born (now living in London) Marisa Schlussel strives to create honest, powerful and emotional songs, drawing on diverse influences from the late 70’s and 80’s includingBowie, Blondie, The Ramones andDuran Duran and giving them a contemporary feel.
To produce the album she’s been working with none other than the legendary Ken Stringfellow whose previous work ranges from The Posies and R.E.M. to the reformation of Big Star and a discography of over 200 albums.
Her aforementioned predilection for Blondie is also apparent as their drummer Clem Burke has also played on several of the tracks along with Rilo Kiley‘s Pierre de Reeder.
Not one to hang around, Marisa composed the album in Berlin, Paris, Amsterdam and finally London, where she’s currently settled down. It’s available now to download by clicking HERE and a video and live dates will follow soon – watch this space!
