Catch Phantoms

Kyle Kaplan and Vinnie Pergola of Phantoms make vocal-heavy EDM music, but that’s not how they started out. Both teen actors from Los Angeles, Kaplan had roles in Hannah Montana and CSI: Miami, while Pergola did commercials and an episode of That’s So Raven. The pair met at an awards party for young actors, and have been friends ever since. Both self-taught musicians, they started remixing songs by rock-leaning artists, like Arcade Fire and Phoenix, before producing original music. Broken Halo, the duo’s sole record, is a bubbly mix of glitzy house tunes and roll-your-face-off EDM jams that mesh well with their shadowy new single, “Been Here Before,” a cautionary tale about knowing when to put the kibosh on turning up.

Phantoms
With Big Wild, at 9 p.m., Friday, March 24, at Regency Ballroom. $21-$25;
