MUSIC ID: Sofia Coppola for Phoenix

The talented Sofia Coppola directs “Chloroform”, the band’s new single.

Text: Yiota Dendrinou


It is not the first time that Coppola collaborates with the band of her husband, Thomas Mars. A couple of songs from the French group were also included in the soundtrack of her movies, Somewhere (2010) and The Bling Ring (2013).

This time the director, known from movies such as The Virgin Suicides (1999), Lost in Translation (2003) and Marie Antoinette (2006), returns with a video for Phoenix’s single Chloroform, which comes straight from their 5th album Bankrupt! and premiered on MoMA’s site.

A lot of tears and dim light constitute this new video, but certainly Coppola gives her own touch in this collaboration. Enjoy the clip, as well as an older video where Phoenix discuss their new album with Pitchfork.



Still from the Chloroform video.
