The phantom players represent all that’s wrong with indie these days; from the way they look to the way they move, and of course the way they sound, this is every bit the jerky guitar driven, hi-hat crazy NME endorsed drivel that has all but rendered the genre unbearable. If that’s the kind of shite you’re into though, these guys are impressively competent for a young band and will no doubt be playing to the trendies at the swan every other week before long. I came to this gig to see JAMES SEVERY but after having to wait until quarter to ten to see this I cut my losses and left early.
