Where does the name 'Phantogram' come from?

A phantogram is a 2D optical illusion when viewed in a certain way, appearing three dimensional. When we were thinking of band names, we thought Phantogram would be a perfect band name for us, being a two piece band creating a large, stereophonic sound. Also, we thought that Phantogram sounded like a message from a ghost or another dimension.

You've just been catapulted to fame in the US, how does that feel?

We don't have paparazzi chasing us around. It feels good that we are building in a natural way as a band, and gaining more fans everyday.
