Phoenix is an alternative rock band from Versailles, France, consisting of Thomas Mars, Deck d’Arcy, Christian Mazzalai and Laurent Brancowitz. The group draws elements from their eclectic ’80s upbringing to arrive at a satisfying blend of rock and synthesizers. Phoenix began as a garage band based out of Mars’ house in the suburbs of Paris. Mazzalai’s older brother Branco joined the band on guitar when his band Darlin’ disbanded in 1995.

New Phoenix Album?
It’s been some time since Glassnote band Phoenix have released music. So long, in fact, that major music outlets like Pitchfork and Stereogum are raising speculation of a new album in the works from the indie-rockers after recent changes to the band’s social media profiles. The last time Phoenix released an album was in 2013, with ‘Bankrupt!’. Stay tuned for details!
