NEW SIGNING: LIVING PHANTOMS
We're so psyched to welcome Connecticut-based electronic/synth-pop artist Living Phantoms to the Maximal Music Sync family of artists and songwriters!
Living Phantoms is the solo project from American composer, producer, and audio engineer Will Benoit, who has been recording music for 18 years and counting. Since co-founding independent artist collective Radar Recordings in 2001, he has spent the past decade exploring music through touring and making records as singer and guitarist for Constants, as well as production work and touring with artists like Ellie Goulding, Caspian, and Junius. He loves to write songs and make noise, and enjoys nothing more than when the two magically coalesce.
With an arsenal of analog synthesizers, drum machines and effects, “the one time metal head and Jesu associate serenely slowdives into shoegaze” (Spin.com) with the debut full length from Living Phantoms. Since the project’s inception 3 years ago, producer Will Benoit has released a series of remixes for artists like Ellie Goulding and Bad Rabbits, and also explored new sonic territory with remixes for underground luminaries such as Caspian and Rosetta.
After a short run cassette release in 2013, Benoit set out to define his sound; a dark, but often uplifting journey through lo-fi 80’s inspired grooves and the dense sonic textures that have become his signature. Recorded and mixed using analog gear entirely at his own solar powered The Radar Studio, there is a hypnotic weight and depth to Living Phantoms that “staggers the ears as well as the heart” (The Onion AV Club).
