I Like This: Fantôme

Fantôme is a project by Hanin Elias, ex of Atari Teenage Riot (and founder of a label called Fatal Recordings) along with Marcel Zürcher of Die Krupps.  And yes, given the band’s DNA, you’d rightly expect something industrial from the duo.

Nope. Instead we get something that’s reminiscent of the late 80s/early 90s alt scene: post-punk, shoegaze and more.  I like it.

The album is called It All Makes Sense and is set to come out September 16.  Here’s the first single. Full tracklisting below.

01. Future Heroes
