Single: Brass Phantoms - Kaleidoscope

Brass Phantoms Kaleidoscope

Brass Phantoms, 'Kaleidoscope'

Info: Brass Phantoms are a four-piece indie rock band from Dublin who were formed organically in 2014. School friends Ryan Cashell (singer) and James Geraghty (guitar) sought out drummer Adam McCabe and finally added a second guitarist, Greg Whelan, after discovering common tastes in music at a party to complete the line-up. From there the band released their debut self-titled E.P. 6 months ago and played at Guinness Amplify, Sunsets Festival, Galway Fringe and Waterford Art Beat festivals. A new two-sided single featuring 'Kaleidoscope' (above) and 'Summer Song' is due for release on the 20th of September with the band's second E.P., City of Wolves, pencilled in for early 2016.

'Kaleidoscope' has a merry disposition with catchy guitar loops and crosses over somewhere in between noughties indie sounds such as The Killers Hot Fuss and late 90's Britpop tinges, there's certainly a charming instant appeal about the track. 'Summer Song' drops the volume a bit and has a 'Coffee & TV' rhythm to it, the song's title appropriately setting you up for lazy day summer feels. Of the two tracks I think 'Kaleidoscope' definitely stands out as my preference and it makes sense that it takes the A-side slot here. Both will be released on 7" vinyl as well which I'm always delighted to see, because when Skynet becomes aware we may lose all of our digitally recorded music, physical copies are a must in such an inevitable eventuality! There are also some tracks from the debut E.P. that I enjoyed, in particular 'Hawaii' and 'I Fly Kites', so have a snoop around their SoundCloud page.
