Hit of the week: Phoenix ‘J-Boy’

Phoenix are gearing up to release their new album Ti Amo this summer and today you can hear its opener and first single ‘J-Boy’.

The band opened up about the album in a recent New York Times profile, describing a long recording process in Paris during extremely fraught political times. Despite that, they described Ti Amo as “incredibly colorful” and there isn’t a better way to describe this first taste.

At least judging by ‘J-Boy’, the French rockers seem to be inching further away from their previous crunchy, dueling guitar-driven sound and more towards the synth-driven power pop they explored on Bankrupt!.
