The light-hearted dreamy melodies of “Come Undone” make the words of the lyrics even sound heavier:

“I left my house early
To the sound of the loud bombs
From the sky

Do you know there’s no glory? no medals?
Just people dying and blood?”

The Phantom Handshakes prove you can perfectly use the fragile soft sounds of dream pop to let your audience know about the raw harsh reality of war. Their powerful song “Come Undone” was recently released on Bandcamp. The proceeds of the sales from the song will be donated to Emergencies. This is an organization that was founded to offer free, high-quality medical and surgical treatment to victims of war.
