Phantogram have released yet another track from their forthcoming Voices, and regardless of how the rest of the album sounds, nothing on it tops the title of “Bill Murray.” The track itself, with its swaying synths and swirling chorus, definitely channels Lost In Translation/Broken Flowers Bill and not the goofy cynic of Ghostbusters and Groundhog Day.
And that’s exactly the vibe they were going for: Josh Carter told The Atlantic, “We named it ’Bill Murray’ because we always pictured a sad Bill Murray for the visuals of that song. We want him to be in the music video.” Judging by the comedy legend’s general down-for-whatever-ness, we’d say the New York duo has a decent chance of making that happen.
