Dive into the Captivating World of Phantogram’s “All A Mystery” Single

Phantogram (Sarah Barthel and Josh Carter) is a critically acclaimed alternative duo. Not too long ago, they unveiled the first single of their next chapter, “All A Mystery,” co-produced by GRAMMY-award-winning producer, John Hill (Portugal. The Man, Bleachers, Cage The Elephant, et al.).

Phantogram – “All A Mystery” visualizer

“‘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. This song touches on love, life, death, and loss. It digs into memories and the wonder of existence. And it examines the push and pull of time on this planet and being able to share the experience of everything all at once as a mere grain of sand on an endless beach.” – Phantogram explained

“All A Mystery”  contains a hazy mix of synths, hypnotic guitars, and beat-crushing drum machines, with mesmerizing vocals spiraling into a psychedelic sea of light. The single launches Phantogram’s new partnership with Neon Gold Records, the celebrated indie label known for its long lineage of powerful alternative pop voices from Charli XCX and HAIM to Tove Lo, MARINA, and Christine and the Queens.

“All A Mystery” also kicks off a powerful summer for Phantogram as they set out on a 27-date North American tour with fellow alternative heavyweights Kings of Leon across August, September, and October. Buy tickets at to see Phantogram perform LIVE.

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.

Since the arrival of 2010’s debut release, “Eyelid Movies,” the duo has amassed over a billion streams, achieved one platinum-certified single, two gold-certified singles, collaborated with legends such as Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine, Billy Corgan, The Flaming Lips, and Miley Cyrus. Also, they have partnered with Big Boi of Outkast to form the supergroup Big Grams, headlined sold-out shows worldwide, become a festival staple, and toured with artists including Arcade Fire, The xx, Muse, M83, alt-J, and more.
