Even though their bright, peppy pop recalls Dexy's Midnight Runners, Big Country, XTC, Talking Heads, and other new wave luminaries, Fife, Scotland's Dogs Die in Hot Cars grew up on a musical diet of Nirvana and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

In 2000, Phoenix’s first album release, United, blazed across the musical skies like a newly discovered comet. Paris, London, L.A. and New York were all captivated, with everyone from Sofia and Roman Coppola to Air heaping praise on them. And with good cause: great songs, great performances, great production and attention to detail. Considering the band are French natives, Phoenix have a rare mastery of the lyric, words entwining themselves around and within, yet always at the service of the song.
