Rocking you gently. And sometimes hard. Killing Phantoms grew out of a common idea of making music that would soundtrack your life, with songs that won't leave your head, and a sound that helps soothe your soul. Phuong Nguyen came fresh from singing/songwriting as Phuong You Norway straight out of Minneapolis when he moved to New York City in 2004 with a head full of Beatles harmonies and Big Muff fuzz, only to meet John LaBombard, guitarist in the most classic of veins, at a completely random party in Spanish Harlem. Several stolen drinks later, through hazy dreams and bold claims, they hashed out the plan for what would be Killing Phantoms. However, it took John's younger sister, Mags LaBombard, to lay down the low end with taut precision and indie sensibility to bring the band to fruition. Songs of hope and regret, of loss and love, these tales are spun with great care. After splitting from the ashes of their former bands, they cut their teeth around NYCs clubs through 2006/2007, and released a self-titled full-length album in October 2007. An EP recorded earlier in the year with Ray Ketchem of Elk City, titled Orange Road, is being mastered with expected release by early 2008.
