SOUNDS LIKE: Richard Swift, Ariel Pink, Mac DeMarco
WHY YOU SHOULD CARE: This bi-coastal duo is making outsider pop that could bring them mainstream
Sultry. Sexy. Mood swing-y. Catchy as all hell. These are just a few words to describe the sound of Foxygen, the latest Jagjaguwar signing whose members reside in Olympia, WA and New York City. In their early 20s, you might be surprised by their sound and what might be their influence, taking nods from both 1970s AM Gold-esque bands and modern indie contemporaries. Sure it's probably been done before, but not with as great an execution as these foxy boys.
"Shuggie" is the first single from their upcoming full length We Are Are The 21st Century Embassadors Of Peace & Magic, and it sure sounds like they craft magic in the studio. They holed up for a week with the influencial Richard Swift, crafting soothing mellow jams that you and your parents can enjoy together in front of the ol' hi-fi. "Shuggie" goes back and forth between first and third gear, skipping right over second cause who needs that in a great song like this. They'll be on the road with Of Montreal with fall, a rather fitting combination of rock and roll sure to melt minds over and over again.
