A Los Angeles-based EDM duo featuring the talents of Kyle Kaplan and Vinnie Pergola, Phantoms deliver icy/hot electro-dance beats with a dash of techno and heavy dose of pop hooks.
Friends since the age of 15, the pair dabbled in the Disney
side of the television and film industry -- Kaplan was featured in Hannah Montana and 10 Things I Hate About You while Pergola appeared in That's So Raven and Miss Behave -- before shifting all of their focus onto music. After honing their chops as DJs, the duo began producing their own music under the Phantoms moniker, releasing their eponymous instrumental debut EP via OWSLA
in 2013. For their follow-up, Kaplan and Pergola hooked up with songwriter and N.Y.C. transplant E.B. Sollis, who helped to steer the project in a more song-oriented direction. The resulting Broken Halo EP, released in 2015, would be the group's first outing for Casablanca Records
. A handful of remixes and singles followed, culminating in the release of Phantoms' official full-length debut in March 2017. ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi
