AboutThe French band comprises Thomas Mars (real name Thomas Croquet, vocals), Deck D'Arcy (real name Frédéric Moulin, bass), Christian Mazzalai (guitar) and Laurent Brancowitz (real name Laurent Mazzalai, guitar), who started playing music as kids in a suburb of Versailles during the same cultural period that produced late-'90s bands such as Air, Mellow and Daft Punk. The band's lineup has no permanent drummer or keyboardist.

Phoenix formed in 1999 and started off as the backing band for a remix of Air's "Kelly Watch the Stars" single. Soon after, Phoenix released their debut album United in 2000. The name "Phoenix" was officially chosen in 1996 when Laurent Brancowitz permanently joined Phoenix after his other band Darlin' disbanded. The other two members of Darlin' (Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo) went on to form Daft Punk.

Phoenix are based in Paris, France and their music has been featured in such films as Shallow Hal and Lost In Translation. In 2006 the band themselves appeared Marie Antoinette, which like Lost In Translation, was directed by Sofia Coppola, Thomas Mars' partner.

The band's fourth album, "Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix" was released in 2009. It contains "1901", which peaked at #1 on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart in January 2010. The album won for Best Alternative Album at the 52nd Annual GRAMMY Awards.
