 Phoenix – “Girlfriend”

In utilizing elaborate production, Phoenix keeps the spirit of Electric Light Orchestra alive with tracks like today’s Sonic Selection. The layered guitars provide a choral backdrop to lead singer Thomas Mars’ harmonic musings on relationships. “Girlfriend” offers nothing in the way of lyrical epiphanies, but the joy of the song comes largely from the duel that unfolds between the words and notes. The song is the musical personification of a playful courtship, creating an infatuation that is rekindled with every listen.
