Phoenix's 'Trying To Be Cool' Video Debuts Off Of 'Bankrupt!'

Cult favorite French band Phoenix has released a music video for "Trying to Be Cool," the latest cut off of the band's recent album, "Bankrupt!"

Phoenix band members Laurent Brancowitz, Deck d'Arcy, Thomas Mars, and Christian Mazzala star in the music video celebration of all things cool, including basement jam sessions, mustaches, skinny jeans, modern art, Adidas tracksuits, and scantily clad women. Take a look at the music video to "Trying to Be Cool" above.

"Trying to Be Cool" is featured on the group's fifth studio album, "Bankrupt!" Released four years after Phoenix's last album, "Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix," "Bankrupt!" performed well for the band, hitting No. 4 on the Billboard 200 to much critical acclaim.

"I guess we're perfectionists in the way that when we make an album, we know it's going to last. It's important that it's exactly how we want it to be," Mars said in an interview with the AP. "But when the record is done, it's all about imperfection."
