You've probably heard "1901" featured in the new Cadillac commercial, but Phoenix is definitely not a one hit wonder in my book. These French rockers have come a long way from their original roots in 1996 and even though the band has undergone a few changes, they are stronger than ever on their 2009 album, Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix. The sound is dreamy and the vocals remind me vaguely of Empire of the Sun (who I believe is one of the best synthpop groups of our time), but Phoenix might have the upper hand due to their catchy and ironic lyrics. Promise me you'll check out their other great songs...it's in your best interest.
