Born in Versailles, Phoenix is on its way to the West Coast! The grammy-winning French pop-rock band returns to the West Coast with their new record Ti Amo showcasing their emotionally upbeat sound and infectious hooks.

 

With albums tracing back in 1999, Phoenix never fails to impress audience members who return time and time again to enjoy their vibrant tunes. Opening the performance will be NY’s teenage buzz band, The Lemon Twigs.

With this tour, the band continues in the tradition of its American success. Since the release in 2009 of their iconic album « Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix », Phoenix has indeed been a favorite of the anglo-saxon audience, charmed by the unique style, graphic and musical universe of the band, between sci-fi vibes, retro futurism and the influence of Sofia Coppola’s movies. An hybrid of rock, pop and electro, marked by the tradition of the « French Touch » without depending on it, the band seems to refuse the classifications and creates its own references and unique musical and visual style. At times provocative, always inventive, their 5 albums are both innovative and infused by playful references to the luminous and light aesthetic of the pop-rock bands of the 70s and 80s.

This year’s new album, Ti Amo, remains faithful to this romantic and slightly nostalgic touch which owned them the title of “postmodern pop”, and recalls an atmosphere of “summer and Italian discos” to take the words of Thomas Mars, the band’s lead singer. However, it doesn’t shy away either from the more troubled atmosphere of the last years, and sometimes hints at the darkness which surrounded the band during the composition of the album – the Bataclan attacks, the refugee crisis or the rise of the alt-right in Europe. As such the album sings of an “hopeless world” without despair and overcomes the challenge of being both aware of the darkness of the time, and the band’s most daringly romantic record yet, animated by a suave, midtempo dance pulse.
