Phoenix - January 2018

Phoenix is one of the most successful bands to come out of France, together with contemporaries Daft Punk and Air. They broke through internationally with Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix in 2009, when songs like Lisztomania and 1901 put them on the map. Their latest album is Ti Amo, an Italy-flavoured gem of 80s retro pop that'll buoy your spirit. They are a great live band (singer Thomas Mars tends to crowdsurf and climb balconies), so very much worth going to see! They're playing just one date in Switzerland, on March 21st at the Volkshaus in Zurich. Thomas Mars talked to us about singing in English, Prince and having chewing gum in your hair.
