Phoenix - 'Trying To Be Cool'

Album Info

  • Release Date: July 8, 2013
  • Label: Atlantic
On ‘Trying To Be Cool’, Thomas Mars is wooing someone with “two dozen pink and white ranunculus”. The band’s bright French-pop groove is every bit as irresistible as Mars’ advances, right up to the final line, “There is no physical evidence of cannibal boyfriends’’. Rejected from the soundtrack of romantic zombie comedy Warm Bodies, perchance?
