News Watch: Phoenix Share ‘Trying To Be Cool’ Video

Phoenix are so cool they’re no longer trying.

Taken from their 'Bankrupt!' LP, Phoenix have shared the video for 'Trying To Be Cool', a clip which involves lots of complicated camera methods that basically turn the whole piece into a seamless video, recorded live in one four-and-a-half-minute burst.

In collaboration with The Creators Project, the video essentially shows Thomas Mars to be the coolest frontman on Earth. Who else on this planet can sing catchy hooks while doing backhand on table tennis (see above)?

Other things we see in the 'Trying To Be Cool' video:

- Confetti
- Bikinis
- Bubbles
- French rockstars looking happy.
