Austin, TX was home to a staggering number of great bands for the two weeks of SXSW, and our former cover stars Phantogram were definitely one of the highlights. Luckily you can relive their killer set from our Guitar Center Sessions/DIRECTV showcase with their performances of “Fall in Love” and “Mouthful of Diamonds” here.
Sarah Barthel and Josh Carter brought their unique energy in a big way and with the addition of some extra bandmates their electro trip-hop sound was even more dynamic. Barthel’s voice was flawless, light and breathy at certain moments but always bursting with confidence and emotion.
It’s that mix of attitude and stage presence that made for a show that left the name “Phantogram” on the lips of everyone who had caught a glimpse.
