Secrecy has been a well-used tool for musicians throughout 2016 and, from the looks of things, Versailles-based quartet Phoenix may well be gearing up for a surprise of their own.
During the past week, the band’s social networks have all been changed; their profile images across their Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts are all now those rather funky-looking old TV test cards. Plus, their official website has completely transformed too, and now boasts the logo of, ahem, the Office de Radiodiffusion-Télévision Française.
What it could mean, no one’s quite sure right now. However, considering their affinity for rainbows and all things multi-coloured - remember these brilliant bomber jackets? - it may well mean they’re gearing up to return with a new and bright musical endeavour. Or that they just fancied a bit of a change…
Phoenix last released music last Christmas, when they offered up their festive number ‘Alone On Christmas Day’, while their fifth album ‘Bankrupt!’ was released back in April 2013.
