LISTEN: Phantogram Go Big on Comeback Track “Into Happiness”

The pair blast back into orbit with a dark-lit trip-hop orchestra anthem.

Phantogram are back, and they definitely mean business. Sarah Barthel and Josh Carter have released “Into Happiness,” their first new song since last year’s dual single, and it’s quite the return to form. Featuring trip-hop aesthetics and the bombastic power of a symphony orchestra at their backs, it’s an electro-goth anthem for a cruel kind of summer.

The track “embodies the personal journey that both of us have taken since we released Three,” Phantogram explained in a letter to fans. “It’s been a long path, coming out of the darkness and into the light.”

The duo are supporting the new single with a slew of tour dates, where fans might just hear more new material as they work toward the follow-up to their 2016 LP. Listen to “Into Happiness” and see the group’s itinerary below.
