Video You Need Know
Not only is MTV's new series ' Skins ' an incredible and raw depiction of fast, loose and out-of-control Baltimore teenagers, it's also a great place to hear some awesome new music.
One of the tracks we recently heard on last night's 'Skins' episode was 'When I'm Small,' by Phantogram . And wouldn't you know it, here we have the music video for the song.
This upstate New York duo sound a bit like a more sociable Portishead , mixing together sleek, down-tempo beats with some moody guitar and torch song vocals.
The video for 'When I'm Small,' directed by Isaac Ravishankara , is a stylish black-and-white affair. It's a basic performance clip, following guitarist Josh Carter and keyboardist/singer Sarah Barthel as they play the track, but it's made all the more alluring by the high-end production values.
Check out Phantogram's 'When I'm Small,' below. The track is taken from the band's Eyelid Movies , which is out now. And be sure to tune in to ' Skins ' for all new episodes Mondays at 10/9c.
