Published Nov 12, 2013Thomas Mars, the frontman for French indie pop suave-sters Phoenix, is married to acclaimed filmmaker Sofia Coppola, and the two have previously collaborated on everything from soundtracks to the creation of a human child. Now, the director has come on board to helm a video for the band's "Chloroform."
The stark clip sees Phoenix performing the mid-tempo track in a dark stage. Apparently, the slower tempo has gotten to both the audience and the camera operator — shot in slow-motion, the clip focuses on a group of women who are overcome with emotion, crying and even passing out due to the band's impossible smoothness.
