I Heart Phoenix and So Should You!

I can't recall how I stumbled upon this group, but once I heard the track Girlfriend I downloaded their new album Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix (I have yet to understand the meaning of the title, but I suspect it has something to do with struggling with genius?). 

Anyway, Phoenix, as their blog describes, is a group of 4 Parisian boys (Christian, Branco, Thomas, and Deck) with brotherly love. They are classified as alternative rock, but I suspect they are more pop (because their songs are so damn catchy).

Just listen to the following songs and tell me if you are on board the Phoenix train?

Girlfriend - Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix

Fences - Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix

If I Ever Feel Better - United

Now, if you don't have that much money and can only download a couple songs. Just grab these four songs immediately (Girlfriend, Fences, If I Ever Feel Better, and Lisztomania) and put them on repeat. Then steal more money to buy the entire album. Well, not steal money, but "find" it, yeah, that's right, FIND money to purchase more of their songs. 

Phoenix tour (just finished the U.S. leg)

Do you know of another band or songs with a similar style to Phoenix? Please let me know - leave a comment!
