Phantom West delivers a breath of fresh air to electronic music by using modern electronic beats and precision built melodies. While other acts reject the sound of traditional instruments, Phantom West embraces them and brings them into the digital realm where he polishes their sounds until they fit perfectly into the compositions he produces. Taking elements from classic synthpop and EBM and classic industrial, Phantom West's music evokes memories of many bands from decades past such as New Order and Depeche Mode, but adds a touch of modernism and experimentation that bring to mind the elaborate work of Coil in their more melodic state. Phantom West is the soundtrack to a sci-fi movie that was never filmed, but exists in our collective minds and ears.
Our equipment has been modified -- methodically deconstructed -- many fuses, vacuum tubes, and transistors have been replaced by pennies which we have gathered from the base of a wishing well in Seattle.
The music that you are currently listening to is the sound of the wishes we have stolen from their owners.
