Music Monday: Phoenix

I’m absolutely loving this song at the moment so as a result, my Music Monday post is dedicated to a group called Phoenix, an alternative rock synth band from Versailles, France, consisting of Thomas Mars, Deck d'Arcy, Christian Mazzalai and Laurent Brancowitz. I often find myself telling you all about new music acts I love but actually Phoenix are a band that have been on the music scene for a good 12 years now. Despite not many people knowing about this band outside of Europe they’ve had some pretty major moments like their single,’Too Young’ which featured in 2003’s ‘Lost in Translation’, which incidentally was directed by Sofia Coppola, who would later marry one of Phoenix's band members! And because you know I like to throw my fashion and musical references around, their single ‘Alphabetical’, taken from their second album mixed with another of their tracks ‘Victim of the Crime’ was made for a Dior runway show. So oh la, la, fashion and music at its finest!

Phoenix are now back with their new album ‘Bankrupt!’ set for release this April and the first single is called ‘Entertainment’, which is packed full of synth-tastic dance pop….rock, I guess! From start to finish it’s almost trance like, with an ebb and flow of low muted bass against this addictive keyboard melody that in places diminishes in speed but just as quickly grabs your attention again against a pounding drum accompaniment.

Now the video, that’s kind of a weird one! Like so much music at the moments there’s a nod towards Korean culture. The characters all seem to have some sort of connection to each other, but are perhaps from three different places and eras with characters such as a pop singer, an ancient warrior with bow skills, fireworks, an awesome street fight, and much more. It's a little weird in parts, kind of random, but it’s certainly different!

For more information on Phoenix check our their official website here and their latest album ‘Bankrupt!’ is released on 22nd April.

Any other Phoenix fans out there?
