PHNTMS Releases New Song “Towers”
- Philadelphia-based alt-rock band PHNTMS has released a new song “Towers” following “Back Burner” released back in March.
The both tracks will appear on their upcoming self-titled EP, which is expected to be released in 2020.
This song draws the various expectations and disappointments we place on ourselves to build this perfect life.
“We really love the idea of dynamics and like to take the approach that each song is like a sonic landscape with peaks and valleys. “Towers” starts out on top of a mountain then goes into a valley, then climbs back up to the top again,” Guitarist Adam Jessamine told AltPress about song. “As far as lyrically, a lot of what Alyssa sings about is extremely personal. “Towers” is all about expectations. We are all force-fed dreams of great jobs, nice houses, new cars and perfect lives. We each have our own definition of “perfect” revolving around these things. When things get hard, if you aren’t happy with yourself and the situation you’re in, no one can change that but you. At the end of the day, as humans, our expectations are the reason why we feel disappointed. Having your own personal goals is the reason you keep on pushing.”
- Also, the band supports to the LGBTQA+ community. “With half the band identifying as queer, we support the LGBTQA community, and we want to continue raising the voices of the queer community through our music,” he said. “We hope that everyone, whether you identify as queer or not, can take our experiences in the lyrics of our songs and relate to them in some way, whether it’s a bad breakup, you’ve been cheated on or you’re not feeling supported by a loved one. When someone can relate to a song, we’d like to think it helps them feel heard and seen.”
