Track Of The Day: The Phantoms - 'Wasting Time'

This brand new track from Scottish four piece The Phantoms is a great little tune with a simple yet anthemic chorus. The band are made up of Colin Simpson (Vocals, rhythm guitar) Colin McKillop (Lead guitar) Peter Stewart (Bass, backing vocals) and Blair Cullen (Drums), who hail from Broxburn, West Lothian. The band formed in March 2012 and their gradual rise has seen them support the likes of Catfish and the Bottlemen. 

Described as sounding like "Oasis if they had listened to The Doors instead of The Beatles", to my ears 'Wasting Time' is more like a refreshing hybrid of The Cribs and New Order, with an added twist of Britpop. Melodic with an edge, this definite grower is available now as a digital single.
