The four musicians who comprise Phoenix are a close-knit group of childhood friends from Versailles, which is where their home studio is based. Their fourth record, “Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix,” recently earned them a Grammy Award for Best Alternative Album. The album’s seven-minute-plus/two-part “Love Like A Sunset” track can be heard in Somewhere, along with the original music that the group composed for the movie.
The members of Phoenix – who write and perform all their works – are guitarist brothers Laurent Brancowitz and Christian Mazzalai, bassist Deck D’Arcy, and vocalist Thomas Mars, who also sang the vocal on Air’s “Playground Love,” which was featured on the soundtrack of Sofia Coppola’s The Virgin Suicides.The band then released their 2000 debut album “United,” whose song “Too Young” became an underground hit once it was used in Ms. Coppola’s Lost in Translation.
