Check out the enigmatic new video from purveyors of mystical dream-pop Phantom Runners.

‘Chasing The Feeling’ came from a real life experience that band member Adam Al-Hilali had: “We were by the Stone Circle at Glastonbury one year, and it got to about eight in the morning after a heavy night and my brother was still in search of something to keep the party going, and I just called out to him to give it a rest…. You’re just chasing the feeling”

Phantom Runners have had a stellar year, taking part in an ASOS fashion shoot, appearing on Balcony TV and entering the recording studio with Huey Morgan of Fun Lovin’ Criminals fame. Huey himself says “This is the one that you don’t pass on. The band has it all. The songs, the drive and a unique combination of musical styles that I have not ever come across.  I’m in. Are you?”

High praise indeed! Be warned: this song is a real ear worm, and you’ll find yourself humming its catchy hooks at all hours of the day. The video is also a little masterpiece in itself, being more of a short film that tells an engrossing story – so check it out!
