New single, new album. Prefer just hearing the new single without the silly video, which can be done [url=[/url]. Otherwise interested as ever, though the single doesn't give any vibes about how the album will be tbf, it's p mediocre.

J-Boy is very Naughty Boys-era YMO so I really like it, much better than anything on Bankrupt

That's a really great single. You're definitely right about the YMO comparison.

I feel like there isn't really much hype for Phoenix anymore. I thought Bankrupt was really underrated.

the lack of hype is probably due to Bankrupt being really disappointing after WAP, and the two four-year gaps between albums

the only tracks I really rate on Bankrupt are Trying to Be Cool and Drakkar Noir. it sounds really muddy and overlaboured, and the tracks are full of awkward twists instead of the breezy pop they were great at. I think I read that they wrote a lot of the songs on it by stitching together fragments they'd written and you can really hear the seams. J-Boy feels like a successful version of the sound they were going for on it

don't like it anywhere near as much as jboy but some of the other tracks theyre playing live (fior di latte and lovelife) sound really nice

Yeah, I'm into this. The "open up your legs" part is very Sebastien Tellier. Lyrically and the way he delivers it.

There are a lot of great things about this track, especially the groove under the verses which for some reason remind me of rave classic "Pure (Pure Energy)" by GTO.

Is that the first time they've ever had any French lyrics in a song?

This sounds pretty good! ideally, phoenix should always sound breezy and nimble imo. bankrupt was comparatively ungainly.
