New single from Phantom Runners is wrapped in nostalgia.
If there’s one thing that we can all unanimously agree on, it’s that we all have a strange fondness for times gone by and the general feeling of nostalgia. It’s a bizarre interest that sometimes verges on morbid fascination, but ultimately it’s something that many of us simply cannot avoid.
That’s why Phantom Runners manage to get it so right on their latest single First Time. Whether the title immediately takes you back to first contact between people or between sheets, the magic of the track is that the music is the perfect sentimental soundtrack. While the Bastille-esque vocals and lyricism gives off a clear romantic-tinged meaning, the funked-up dance-driven instrumentation stands alone as something that could just as easily provide backdrop to any trip down memory lane.
In a culture so indebted to the past and fond of memories, Phantom Runners have provided the perfect soundtrack.
