Black Out Days precedes Fall In Love on the album, and while overshadowed by the monster track it follows, it’s still a solid song. Barthel is on vocals again (I prefer her voice over Carter’s), and her vocals are more subtle on this track. Again, this song displays the key sound elements from Phantogram – electro rock, stutter beats and some psychedelic and shoegaze elements. The vocals on the chorus actually mimic the stutter beat somewhat, which is a little different. I prefer the vocal approach in “Fall In Love” though, with the singing going on around the beats vs. right on the beats. Halfway through the song there’s a cool breakdown where the synth sound gets really heavy and deep, or is maybe just more isolated so it stands out more. This track is very atmospheric and it helps provide a nice lead-in for “Fall In Love”.
