Sure, French rock band Phoenix had a great year in 2009 with all of the praise for its album "Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, but 2010 has already proven that that good fortune continues. Fresh from a Grammy win, a No. 1 song on the Alternative Songs Chart, and the announcement they'll be playing Bonnaroo this summer, Phoenix sat down for an on-camera chat with Billboard.com about success, French guys singing in English, and hearing their music in a Cadillac commercial.
"We are a little gang, you know?" guitarist Laurent Brancowitz jokes. "When we are together, we are unbeatable."
Aside from their Best Alternative Music Album Grammy, the Alternative Songs No. 1 for "1901," and their part in the Bonnaroo line-up, the quartet is also in the process of writing the score for frontman Thomas Mars' wife Sofia Coppola's next movie, "Sometimes."
