Phoenix Debuts Bankrupt! at MHOW

1 of 37



From Eric Sundermann's write-up:

Thomas Mars stood between them, the two guitarists of Phoenix. Laurent Brancowitz and Christian Mazzalai softly played the closing riff of "Love Like a Sunset Part II," the wistful, crescendoing track from the band's 2009 record, Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix. The two stretched each note of the closing ditty, letting the harmonies ring for a moment. A sly smile crept across Mars' face. In 15 years, when Behind the Music (is that still a thing?) runs their Phoenix episode, Mars will tell the camera, in his charming, subtle French accent, "Oh, yes. That show at Music Hall of Williamsburg just before Bankrupt! released. That was one of the most important moments in our career."
