Phoenix | Trying To Be Cool (Official Video)



Phoenix return with their latest single Trying To Be Cool giving it one of the most interesting and exciting videos of the year so far. In collaboration with The Creators Project and directed by the CANADA collective the video features entirely live takes as the band embark on a weird and wonderful journey through their set meeting confetti cannons, motorbikes, a Marilyn Monroe impersonator and many more amusing encounters on the way. To make it an even bigger feat only two cameras were used meaning when one shoots each 25 second scene the other is setting up ready to take over and so forth. Pretty impressive huh? Check it out above.
