Phoenix Ratchet Up Melodrama in 'Entertainment'
New clip is full of longing stares and slow-motion running

Phoenix cheekily, lovingly ratchet up the melodrama in their brand new video for "Entertainment," the first single from their long-awaited record, Bankrupt! The clip opens with a children's choir belting the song's indelible hook, then the tracks kicks in as the video switches among a handful of lovelorn story-lines – like two fledgling samurais, and a pop star and a fan – all of which include plenty of longing stares into the distance and running in slow motion. And while some of the tales reach a tragic bloody conclusion, the video nevertheless ends on a soaring synth note and a passionate kiss.
