Extracted from their 2006 album It’s Never Been Like That, Long Distance Call is a satisfying slice of Phoenix-pop, neatly sculpted and slick as ever. The single was successful enough to attract the attentions of a slightly different band, Paramore who covered it a few years later. CD single with remixes and the video.

- Long Call Distance Call by Phoenix
8/10 Jack 5th February 2015
There's something about Phoenix - maybe being French - but they have this amazing capacity to write catchy pop songs that last the distance. |Long Distance Call" (like all Phoenix songs) is a pop gem that comes at you at a 100 miles an hour. It's a pure adrenalin rush of melodic guitar. The video to the song is really cool as well - the band plays as the background changes to reveal some of the famous landmarks in Paris. This CD comes with a few remixes of Long Distance Call as well as the song "Rally"! A must-buy!
