Known for his work with a French indie rock group called Phoenix, this Guitarist also played with a band called Darlin'. His popular songs with Phoenix include "Too Young" (featured in the film Lost in Translation), "1901" (a United States Platinum recording), and "Lisztomania."
He formed his first music group, Darlin', in 1992; Phoenix debuted in Versailles, France, in 1999.
For most concerts, his instrument of choice was a Fender Bullet electric guitar.
He and his brother, Christian Mazzalai, were co-founders of Phoenix.
Daft Punk Musicians Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homen-Christo co-founded the band Darlin' with Brancowitz. Daft Punk, in fact, took its name from a quotation in an English music magazine's negative review of Darlin'.
