Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix

phoenix

The hype-band of the moment appears to be the French quartet, Phoenix.  Their name has been popping up all over the place ever since I heard their latest single on Sirius XM Satellite last Friday.

The quirky four-piece from Versailles have been around since 1996.  Their existence is directly connected to other notable French outfits such as Air and Daft Punk, while the lead singer, Thomas Mars, is romantically tied to Sophia Coppola.  Name-dropping aside, the band writes energetic pop songs with electronic beats and infectious rhythms.  Envision a Soulwax skeleton supported by a Strokes backbone.

Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix is their fourth studio album and is scheduled for proper release on May 25/26.  To keep fans at bay, the band has made the first single available as a high quality download on their official website.  Best of luck getting it out of your head once you listen.
