We know very little about Helsinki-based duo Phantom, other than that “Kisses” is an utterly beautiful second single from the pair. With just one EP under their belt, singer Hanna Toivonen and producer Tommi Koskinen found fans in the xx last year, who shared Phantom’s video on their tumblr. Like their British admirers, Phantom ooze whispered vocals over sparse accompaniments and ululating beats. “Kisses” is a promising track–if Phantom can manage to sample Erik Satie’s “Gymnopédie No. 1” without making a classical music fan cry, they’re onto a good thing.
