didn't need to look far to find a director for their 'Chloroform' video. Thomas Mars' wife and 'Lost In Translation'-director Sofia Coppola takes the helm on this new clip.

Watch the video on MoMA PopRally.

Phoenix return to the UK in 2014 with a run of dates, including two Brixton Academy shows.
