Phoenix cover Whitney, get remixed by PC Music's A.G. Cook

The iconic French indie-rockers are currently in Australia for Sydney City Limits and some accompanying sideshows.

Those who managed to catch iconic French group Phoenix at the inaugural Sydney City Limits (or any of their sideshows) would know how recognisable their catalogue is. Even ignoring singles like If I Feel Better and Litszomania, there's something about the way Phoenix write music that provokes comfortable familiarity and nostalgia – something their live show is overwhelmingly full of. Currently in Australia wrapping up their brief tour, the first in four years, Phoenix popped into the triple j studios for a brilliant cover of Whitney's No Woman, one of the highlights from their 2016 record Light Upon The Lake. It's a stripped-back and casual display of Phoenix's light-hearted approach to indie-rock, something which featured heavily on their own 2017 record Ti Amo.

The cover arrives as the first official remixes of Ti Amo start to appear, with PC Music figurehead A.G. Cook jumping on board for an unpredictable and synth-glazed remix of Fior Di Latte which is bound to cause controversy amongst Phoenix's more traditional indie-rock fans. It's glitchy and colourful, something characteristic of A.G. Cook's sound, with bright synth work and distorted vocals swirling around the single's original backbone.
