"Jaw dropping"

Experiencing Phantom Theory is like being caught up in the eye of a storm… As the all-out demolition reaches its climax, stage smoke slowly shrouds the duo and the audience are left to gather their jaws from off the floor. - The Fly Magazine

"Powder keg of musical explosiveness"

Mighty two-man-army Phantom Theory raise the bar skyward with their collision of beefy, discordant guitar riffs, swift tempo changes and merciless drumming in a powder keg of musical explosiveness. - The Fly Magazine

"Yay for DIY Recordings"

Their recordings were made for a whopping budget of £22.50 and they sound better to my ears than many record company backed efforts costing literally 100 times more. - Tom Robinson, BBC Radio 6 Music

"Two-piece evolution"

First the White Stripes…then Death from Above 1979…then Blood Red Shoes…and now Phantom Theory. - Bethan Elfyn, BBC Radio One

Phantom Theory are two guys from Oxford who play loud music.

They’ve supported the likes of Hundred Reasons, Johnny Foreigner, Hold Your Horse Is, Oxford Collapse, Winnebago Deal and Swound! and have fine tuned their live set into a monstrous roar of fuzzed up mega riffs and bone shaking killer beats.

In October 2010 Phantom Theory’s self-released debut single ‘Shotguns and Sharks’ was chosen by Huw Stephens as BBC Introducing’s Tip of the Week which resulted in airplay on BBC Radio 1, BBC 6Music as well as several BBC regional stations.

Summer 2010 saw the band play the Barn Stage at Truck Festival with the likes of Future of the Left, Los Campesinos! and Blood Red Shoes followed by a mini tour supporting Pulled Apart by Horses and Young Legionnaire (feat. yourcodenameis:milo & Bloc Party members).

They released their debut single titled ‘Shotguns and Sharks’ on their own record label A Mother Python Records in November 2009 along with a DIY £15 budget music video available to watch on YouTube.
