Phantogram is back with a music video for their track “Into Happiness,” directed by Floria Sigismondi.
The music video’s concept has used the East Asian belief that originated from a Chinese legend, the “red thread of fate.” According to the myth, the gods tie an invisible red cord around the ankles of those that are destined to meet one another in a certain situation or help each other in a certain way. In Japanese, Korean, and Chinese culture the red thread is believed to be tied around the pinky finger.
The mystical string connects destined lovers, regardless of place, time, or circumstances. This magical cord may stretch or tangle, but never break. In the video, Phantogram’s Josh Carter and Sarah Barthel play the part of the couple who are fated to one another.

Phantogram will be going on tour in August, and they will be playing in Toronto at the Danforth Music Hall with Bob Moses on August 30th.
