Phantogram – When I’m Small

Phantogram are a duo out of Saratoga Springs, New York who formed in 2007 and never looked back. Their hit 2009 single ‘When I’m Small’ is this week’s ‘Featured Song’ here at SurfStitch. If you saw them at last weekend’s Splendour In The Grass festival, you know how dynamic and engaging the duo’s music can be, and ‘When I’m Small’ is a true appreciation of the amazing sounds they make.Phantogram2

The band are known to play a mix of genres. Whether it be trippy urban styled beats, or more electronic influenced, or even style completely unique to themselves, Phantogram are definitely a band to keep an eye on. The duo was originally named ‘Charlie Everywhere’ and it is profoundly evident they know how to attract audiences through their music. ‘When I’m Small’ is Track 2 on the bands 2009 album ‘Eyelid Movies’ and popularity for the song only continues to grow through to the current days of 2014. The attractive guitar riffs will have you hooked from the beginning, not to mention the amazing melodic singing tones of Sarah Barthel. The duo come together so well each time they perform, whether in the studio or not, and ‘When I’m Small’ signifies this creative musical relationship perfectly.

Originally starting off as school friends, members Josh Carter and Sarah Barthel have now grown the band to where they want it to be, touring internationally and playing some of the biggest shows of their careers. The song even featured in both a Gillette commercial in the United States, and also in the opening episode of MTV’s hit show ‘Skins’.

We hope you all enjoy this week’s Featured Song, ‘When I’m Small’ by New York duo ‘Phantogram.’ If you missed them over the weekend at Splendour in the Grass, the track is available for download through iTunes.
