I Fantomatici play instro music since 2002. They come from Vicenza, in the north-east of Italy.
“Fantomatici” in Italian means “that maybe don’t really exist”. But I assure they exist, and mix in their compositions surf, beat, rockabilly, easy listening, Italian B movies soundtracks, but also punk and lo-fi. Always with an original, peculiar style.
The music reminds of seasides, exotic atmospheres, alien worlds, Italian futurism, spaghetti-western lands, mysterious women. They are young, and sometimes don’t know what they do. But they always do it.
