“Phantomwise” – Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin
Last night I returned to the city of my high school alma mater (Central High ’09, represent!) to watch Springfield’s best, Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin. I hesitate to use the term local band, as SSLBY tours internationally and has been featured on the likes of The O.C.
Here’s a video that Will and Phil recorded in Vienna a few years ago. This song always takes me back to 2011, when I first navigated my own way around London and Cambridge and listened to “Phantomwise” on repeat and was curious and sickeningly happy: Hometown boys in a far-off place.
