While they're not quite Jay Z and Beyonce, perhaps they are the indie equivalent, with Sofia Coppola and Phoenix frontman Thomas Mars marking a pretty unique power couple. The recently married filmmaker and musician have collaborated creatively, with Phoenix contributing music to both "Somewhere" (the band scored the film) and "The Bling Ring" (which featured the song "Bankrupt!"). And now, the roles are being reversed.

Sofia Coppola

While they're not quite Jay Z and Beyonce, perhaps they are the indie equivalent, with Sofia Coppola and Phoenix frontman Thomas Mars marking a pretty unique power couple. The recently married filmmaker and musician have collaborated creatively, with Phoenix contributing music to both "Somewhere" (the band scored the film) and "The Bling Ring" (which featured the song "Bankrupt!"). And now, the roles are being reversed.

Mars recently chatted with The West Australian, and while no direct quote is provided, they say the singer revealed that "wife Coppola just finished making her first-ever music video for Phoenix." No word yet on what song it will be for, but it's not the first time Coppola has tried to make a video from the band's music. Way back in 2010, it was reported that Coppola was trying adapt "Love Like A Sunset" into a film, but while nothing came of it, she did wind up using the song to open "Somewhere." Nonetheless, we're curious to see what tune will get her treatment.

Speak of music videos, MGMT has dropped a video (via Pitchfork) for their latest single, "Cool Song No. 2," and while it features the acting talents of the always excellent Michael K. Williams, there's another reason to hit play on this one: Bradford Young. He's the cinematographer behind "Ain't Them Bodies Saints" and the recently released "Mother Of George," and he has a pretty remarkable eye and visual stamp off which is in full evidence here. Though, it doesn't take much to make Williams look cooler than he is already.
