"Bigger, better, faster, stronger" – that's what we said of Voices, this year's release by Phantogram. The Saratoga Springs, NY duo certainly upped the ante with their anticipated second album, making the nearly five years between well worth the wait. As always, Josh Carter's dark dance hooks and Sarah Sarah Barthel breathy vocals are to die for -- the two continue to look and sound amazing – but they've reached a new level of sound that's in keeping with their growing legion of fans, the stadiums they're filling, their numerous international festival dates, and their ubiquity on television and movies. Despite their busy schedule, Josh and Sarah stopped by KEXP to perform some of the new Phantogram songs live in our studio and chat with John Richards, who has currently played Voices more often than any other album in 2014! Watch now and be seduced.
