Alphabetical





They haven’t exactly risen from the ashes, but the boys of Phoenix have put together quite the tasty sophomore album. Alphabetical is the French quartet’s first record since 2002’s United, and it’s full of breezy, summery tunes perfect for the sunshiny weather currently baking us all into oblivion. They may share a hometown with Air and Daft Punk, but while those acts are heavily electronic, Phoenix uses synths and beats as a way to further flesh out their tunes, not as their primary aspect. Guitars feature prominently on the catchier tunes like “Run Run Run” and first single “Everything Is Everything”. Strummed guitars, tight beats, and frontman Thomas Mars’ poppy vocals all combine to produce something somehow greater than the parts. Next time you’re at the park or at the beach, enjoying the magic of summer, pop in Alphabetical and enjoy the magic of Phoenix at the same time.
