Phoenix is a critically-acclaimed band from France. Born out of high school friendships in Versailles, Phoenix have been nominated twice for Grammy awards, winning “Best Alternative Album” in 2010 for their record Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix. They also won “Best Rock Album” in 2014 for Bankrupt! at the French Victoires de La Musique. Known for their sleek, highly stylized sonics and incredible, infectious melodies, Phoenix has released six celebrated, brilliant albums, the most recent being 2017’s Ti Amo.

The French band is comprised of Thomas Mars (vocals), Deck D’Arcy (bass), Christian Mazzalai (guitar), and Laurent Brancowitz (guitar). Phoenix formed in 1999 and started off as the backing band for a remix of Air’s “Kelly Watch the Stars” single. Soon after, Phoenix released their debut album United in 2000. The name “Phoenix” was officially chosen in 1996 when Laurent Brancowitz permanently joined Pheonix after his other band Darlin’ disbanded. The other two members of Darlin’ (Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo) went on to form Daft Punk.

Phoenix are based in Paris, France and their music has been featured in such films as Shallow Hal and Lost In Translation. In 2006 the band themselves appeared in Marie Antoinette, which like Lost In Translation, was directed by Sofia Coppola, Thomas Mars’ partner.
