We’ve always had a little soft spot for French alternative outfit Phoenix – neither pOp nor pure rock, their music is a pleasing hybrid of both and their new single ‘1901’ continues on in the fine tradition. Already getting spins on Triple J (where it’s been their No.1 played song for the past two weeks) and across the national Nova Network, the single is the first from their forthcoming album ‘Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix’ (pictured), which will be released by Shock Records in Australia in the middle of May. The ten track album, the group’s fourth, is their first with new record label V2 Records (distributed by Shock locally) and has been co-produced by long-time collaborator Philippe Zdar. To celebrate the release of the single and the new album, the band is offering the single ‘1901’ as a free download from their OFFICIAL WEBSITE.
