For Brighton’s Phantom Runners 2015 could be a breakthrough year. Currently eyeing up labels and being eyed up in return, the band are working on some new tracks, apparently under the influence of Blood Orange and Michael Jackson among other things, which could produce interesting if unpredictable results. Laserbeam is their first release of the year, bring you a summer’s day in mid-February with its laid-back rhythms, guitar bursts and soft meadow-breeze harmonies. And it’s a free download, which ought to always lighten the darkest of moods on the greyest of winter days.
