Toronto outfit Phantom Atlantic have crafted an atmospheric sound of intensity and pressure since arriving on the scene in 2017, welding Radiohead eccentricity to a Foo Fighters arena-rock frame of airtight guitar punch and chest-rattling rhythm. 

Their forthcoming EP, produced by Steve Molella of Finger Eleven, narrates the cycle of looking inward for a way out. In line with Your View of a Former Me, new single “Man Like You cinematically explores an ideal self that feels continually out of grasp – and may only be an illusion. 

Shape-shifting throughout its four minute runtime, Man Like You moves from creeping verses and pulsing choruses toward a climactic moment of soaring catharsis that – much like the fantasy of personal triumph laid out in its lyrics – inevitably proves to be fleeting.
