The story behind Phoenix’s latest video for “Chloroform,” which appears on their recent album Bankrupt!, is kind of a cute one. Thomas Mars of the band is married to filmmaker Sofia Coppola (daughter of Francis Ford Coppola, writer/director of Lost In Translation), and so the two decided to join forces, creating something that showcases their respective skills. The visuals for “Chloroform” are wonderfully dramatic: black-and-white, slow-motion, and lots of beautiful-crying. Not sure who inspired what, but hey, couples who make music videos together stay together, right?
