Hear This Song Today: Scars by Phantom

If you were disappointed when you realised Architecture In Helsinki had no link with the ‘world’s northernmost urban area among those with a population of over one million people,’  then perhaps Phantom, who actually hail from there, will pique your interest. Having gained exposure on the xx’s website, they do bear a slight similarity to the Mercury Prize winners, but with poppier vocals and generally a lot more going on than the excellent sparse folk. Apart from the clear standout song, Scars, the rest of their EP doesn’t quite compare (though there are some interesting moments), but given they only formed this year they’re definitely a band to enjoy now and hope for enjoyment from in the future.
