Countdown with Phoenix in their “Trying to be Cool” Video (Playing Made in America Fest 8/31)
French alt-pop outfit Phoenix just released the music video for “Trying to be Cool.” It’s the second single off of their new album Bankrupt! that came out in April. Synthy and melodic, the tune erupts into a satisfying dance party towards the end. The music video was produced by The Creators Project, a partnership between Intel and VICE. It features a lot of counting down and, well, some pretty cool scenes. You can check out the video below, and you can catch Phoenix performing at the first day of the Made in America Festival on August 31st.
