Critically acclaimed alt duo Phantogram unveiled the first single of their next chapter, “All A Mystery.” Weaving together a hazy mix of synths, hypnotic guitars and beat-crushing drum machines, with mesmerizing vocals into a psychedelic sea of light, Phantogram’s Sarah Barthel and Josh Carter’s return is a triumph. Co-produced by GRAMMY-award-winning producer John Hill (Portugal. The Man, Bleachers, Cage The Elephant, et al.), it’s a sensational return to form for the NY duo.

“All A Mystery” kicks off a powerful summer for the Phantogram as they set out on a 27-date North American tour with fellow alternative heavyweights Kings of Leon across August, September and October. More tour dates will be announced soon.

Phantogram comments on the track:

 ““All A Mystery” was a line that we used to sing when we first started writing songs for Phantogram. We would sing it and harmonize it together while working in the barn turned recording studio. Back then, it was “all a mystery” to us how we came together to become a band, and 14 years later, we are bewildered that we have been doing this for so long.”

The single also launches Phantogram’s new partnership with Neon Gold Records, the celebrated indie label known for its long lineage of powerful alt-pop voices from Charli XCX and HAIM to Tove Lo, MARINA, and Christine and the Queens.

Lauded as an experimental and alternative band and one that’s never been married to a particular genre, Phantogram – comprised of lifelong friends Josh Carter and Sarah Barthel – have continued to change the zeitgeist for almost a decade by consistently challenging it with their signature blend of hard-hitting beats, guitar-driven dark psychedelia and electronic pop.
