Phoenix have premiered the video for “Trying To Be Cool,” the second single from the band’s critically acclaimed fifth album, Bankrupt!. The video, made in conjunction with The Creators Project (a partnership between Intel and Vice), was directed by the CANADA collective, and was filmed entirely live in full takes of the song. In addition to a genius live performance of the track by the band, the video also sees two film crews tackling the impressive task of continuously swapping shots every 25 seconds. The resulting video, full of sparklers, confetti canons, fake money, a Marilyn Monroe impersonator, motorcycles, fake mustaches, and much, much more is unlike any you’ve ever seen.
Music discovery. Lifestyle inspiration.
