So confusing - a song with the same name as a song by another band, from an album that’s the name of yet another…
Phantom Power does have hints of the Super Furry Animals about it, but Diagrams, aka Sam Genders, gives it a lighter air than maybe Gruff Rhys could, allowing the song to bounce around a little more freely. It doesn’t have hints of Chromatics, maybe, but it has more than hints of greatness nonetheless.
It’s about feeling like you’re losing a grip on your sanity at one moment, then feeling inspired and up for anything the next. Or frustration with yourself yet believing that it’s possible to sort yourself outSam Genders
Chromatics is out on January 19th on Full Time Hobby records.
Diagrams will be playing live on 21st January, at The Lexington, London – tickets are on sale now from www.kililive.com/artists/diagrams.
