French electro-pop group Phoenix have released the video for their song Trying To Be Cool off their latest album Bankrupt!, released in April via Glassnote. The video, directed by Barcelona-based trio CANADA in collaboration with The Creators Project, might give you some new ideas about how to impress people with your hipness.
The clip follows the band as they make their way through various scenes in a production studio while trying (and succeeding) to be cool. Frontman Thomas Mars walks around getting fitted for luxurious outfits, showing off his skills at ping pong and chess, and releasing doves into the air. The rest of the band is shown shooting out of cannons, revving motorcycle engines and rehearsing while being surrounded by paparazzi and fans. Très cool. Check out the video below, and try not to be jealous.
