Phoenix in Studio A (photo by Brian Gallagher/WFUV)
Phoenix is back with album No. 6, and it has us dancing like never before. The world may be troubled, but Ti Amo is a sunny, groove-drenched collection of songs created out of darkness to bring light.
The French four-piece returned to WFUV to debut songs from the new album (and to treat us to a updated version of their classic, "1901") live in Studio A. I also spoke to frontman Thomas Mars and guitarist Laurent “Branco” Brancowitz about the inspirations for the new songs and recording in Paris.
