Fior di Latte
Fleur de Lys
On their sixth record, we find Phoenix at both their most romantic and irresistibly rakish. Ti Amo’s subjects include—but are not limited to—love, desire, gelato, and lost European summers, and might have inspired a career high. “J-Boy” and “Ti Amo” are a 1-2 punch worthy of the “Lisztomania”/”1901” combo that opens Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix. “Fior de Latte” is all twinkling synths and Thomas Mars at his yearnsome best, while the giddy “Fleur de Lys” is so beautifully ‘80s, its video should be shot aboard a yacht with a cameo offered to Simon Le Bon. 2017 has its album of the summer.
