Say Hello to FOXYGEN – Jagjaguwar’s Newest Signing, Pre-order EP


We are over the moon to introduce the newest member of the Jagjaguwar family, FOXYGEN. The bi-coastal songwriting duo is comprised of Sam France (vocals, Olympia, Wash., 22 years old) and Jonathan Rado (guitar/keyboards, NYC, 22). They are the raw, de-Wes Andersonization of The Rolling Stones, Kinks, Velvets, Bowie, etc. that a whole mess of young people desperately need. They create a sometimes-impressionistic, sometimes-hyper-real portrait of sounds from specific places and times. Yet, it never comes across as anything but absolutely modern music.

They bring the manic, freewheeling qualities of an artist like Ariel Pink to those aforementioned influences to make for one of the most refreshing listens of the year. They are the real deal and total savants. Their albums are love letters to vinyl collections.

Foxygen’s debut release, Take The Kids Off Broadway EP, is out July 24th. Pre-order the EP now at SC Distribution and receive an instant gratification download of the ENTIRE EP two months before it’s released!

The first single premiered on The A.V. Club earlier today! Listen and download “Make It Known” below.
