Philadelphia based band PHNTMS release the velvety-smooth ‘Back Burner’.
Lead vocalist Alyssa Gambino utilises her impressive range to great effect, switching from growling lows to shattering heights with ease. Backed up by gritty guitars and a driving rhythm section, the track is a breathtaking exploration of relationships and protecting yourself from the “flame” of a new romantic connection.
With half of the band identifying as queer, PHNTMS also hope to reach out to and support the LGBTQA+ community. Drummer Gene Murphy confides, “We openly talk about lesbian relationships in our music and we want to bring hope to anyone who is in the closet and doesn’t feel safe coming out. Whether you are out as queer or not, your identity is valid and we hope our music helps you escape heteronormativity for a brief moment.”
