Watch Phoenix Rock a Parisian Tour Bus

For the latest edition of La Blogotheques’ “The Take Away Shows,” Phoenix took to the streets, tour buses, and bridge underpasses of Paris to run through a few of their simple, impeccable pop songs. The reactions are fun — blank stares from seen-it-all tourists, head-bopping from members of a wedding party, fan gushing from a miniature-Eiffel-tower salesman — but the clips are mostly great for how understated and handsome they are, and how well they work as accompaniment to the tunes. Sometimes, it’s just about appreciating the prettiness.
