Single Review – Phoenix – Goodbye Soleil

Phoenix continue their summery streak with new track Goodbye Soleil, the third single to be released from the upcoming album Ti Amo. With a high-pitched robotic lick and building synth to match, Goodbye Soleil equals the lax and floaty rock of recent material, including the French chorus reflecting the universal feel of titular track Ti Amo released in May. The echoic vocals of Thomas Mars adds to the smooth resurgences of the song, its chilled feel being its greatest asset. Yet its lack of change throughout makes for a track that is frankly a bit uninteresting. Unfortunately, Goodbye Soleil doesn’t reach the height of Pheonix’s previous two singles, but its diverse direction surely gives hype for the upcoming album.
