Song: Mouthful of Diamonds
Album: Eyelid Movies (2010)
Prior to today, I had never heard of Phantogram, but needed to find a North Coast Festival band to write about for the ticket giveaway. Amongst the Djs and electro-dance artists, “Mouthful of Diamonds” stuck out for two reasons. First, the second line of the song is one of my favorite phrases…. You’re getting’ high on your own supply. It’s one of those things I have to tell myself when my ego gets a little out of control. It immediately helps to reel me back in. The rest of lyrics are pretty good, too.
The second thing that drew me in is the music. Unlike a lot of other electronic-heavy bands, the loops, hooks and keys didn’t overtake the song. Everything was properly balanced.
