Sofia Coppola‘s (Lost In Translation, Marie Antoinette) next film, Somewhere is about a hard-living Hollywood actor who re-examines his life after his 11-year-old daughter surprises him with a visit. Prefix tells us that the popular French band Phoenix is working on the score/sound design for the film. Here is what frontman of the Grammy-winning group, Thomas Mars had to say:

I love Phoenix and here at TFS we are pretty excited for Coppola’s new film. Check out an example of their music below.
