Phoenix Reimagine Live Performance in Super-Awesome "Trying to Be Cool" Video

So they might not try to be cool, but Phoenix can't help it—they are a French synthpop band, duh.

Their latest video, "Trying to Be Cool," pushes the envelope of what live performance videos could, and should, be. Made in conjunction with the Creators Project, the video was shot entirely live in full takes of the song. You know what that means—no bathroom breaks. Just kidding (we hope).

Watch as the band serenades their way through various colorful scenes and wind up in the middle of a giant synchronized dance party. How French.
