The Phantoms formed in 2012, in West Lothian, Scotland. Composed of Colin Simpson (Vocals and Rhythm Guitar), Colin McKillop (Lead Guitar), Blair Cullen (Drums) and Zach Tarimo Goodhur (Bass Guitar), the quartet released their first EP, 'This Is How It Should Be' at the end of 2013, garnering the band significant attention, including from Jim Gellatly from XFM Scotland who described them as 'Soaring Atmospheric Britpop… What Oasis would have sounded like if they’d listened to The Doors rather than the The Beatles.'
More recently the band unveiled their stellar tune 'Revolution', which delivers progressive, building melodies, anthemic riffs and hooks, and killer lyrics to complete, as well as 'Wasting Time', both of which you can watch the videos below.
The band have been gathering an army of fans with their huge sound and infectious on-stage energy. Having embarked on a UK tour, with support slots for Catfish and the Bottlemen and We Were Promised Jetpacks the band wear their influences in their sleeves, with stylistic elements from Kasabian, Royal Blood and Arctic Monkeys being able to be heard throughout, culminating in a sound that has earned The Phantoms the reputation as one of Scotland’s most exciting prospects.
