The pride of Saratoga Springs, Phantogram, have evolved throughout their history. Their fourth album, Ceremony, released in 2020, was richer and more nuanced than their previous work, while still retaining an electronic edge.
This song, the first single of that album, was co-written by the two members of Phantogram - Sarah Barthel and Josh Carter - along with producer Boots and William Patrick Corgan - he usually goes by Billy - and was something of an alternative radio hit. Both Carter and usual vocalist Barthel contribute lead vocal to this song.
Lyrically, the song is brighter than most prior Phantogram fare, although it still teeters strongly on the dark side. It shows a maturity not seen before.
