“Let’s keep it in the family”. Well, we are not sure if those were the right words, but it’ funny to think that the famous and celebrity-daughter filmmaker Sofia Coppola spoke like this to her boyfriend Thomas Mars, the leader of the tres chic french band Phoenix.

Sofia needed him for the soundtrack for her last movie, “Somewhere” – which will be featured worldwide in theatres from next September – and the proper mood she was looking for had to sound close to Phoenix’s tune “Love like a Sunset”.

Easy thing to do, just ask Thomas’ band to write some music for her.
Said and done. For Phoenix’ s guitarist Christian Mazzalai the final score sounds “very minimal”. We’ll see. And listen.
