With his original work as a backdrop, the rest of the band's influence has molded Phantom Fundamental into something entirely unique. We are classified as an 'alternative' band, but we’re not quite like the big alternative acts out there. We focus a lot on eclecticism and individuality, trying to find instrumentation that most bands shy away from. We have ambitions to be all over the board: Folk, Art Rock, Indie, Pop, complex orchestrations and simple arrangements.
This allows each song to stand out from the last and keeps our listeners deeply engaged. That being said, we still have many consistencies as a band that are pervasive throughout our songs, connecting them, and make them uniquely ours. We start our arrangements with a singer-songwriter feel- just one guy singing over his acoustic guitar. Then we layer on complex, stimulating sounds through electric guitar and synthesizer.
Other times, we peel it back to some old fashioned roots, throwing down acoustic piano with a clean bass. Since joining, we have joined the great promotion company, Fusion Shows and have played around the Midwest in great places like Blind Pig in Ann Arbor, MI, The Crofoot in Pontiac, MI, Elbo Room in Chicago, IL, and Mac's Bar in Lansing, MI. We very much feel that Phantom Fundamental is only just starting it's musical journey and we are very excited to spread our music around the world to anyone interested in an intelligent, creative, and honest new genre of music.
