ALBUM & VIDEO RELEASE // Foxygen Shares New Video For “Coulda Been My Love” Off “…And Star Power”, Out Today Via Jagjaguwar

Foxygen celebrate today’s release of the oh so wild ride that is … And Star Power by sharing the new video for second single, “Coulda Been My Love.” Aptly described by Pitchfork, “Foxygen have become increasingly assured and accomplished songwriters, outfitting standouts like ‘Coulda Been My Love’ . . . not just with silken soft-focus melodies and heavenly harmonies, but ever-evolving arrangements that steer the songs into surprising, splendorous new directions without losing the throughline.” Catch the video for “Coulda Been My Love,” directed by Grant Singer above or on the band’s Vevo / YouTube, and catch the nine-piece Star Power band thunder-and-lightning their way across North America and Europe until the end of November. You can find a full list of dates below.

“Sam and Rado have rock ‘n roll in their blood. It’s not something they aspire for, it’s who they are. I wanted the video to capture that.” – Grant Singer (Director)

Order …And Star Power via SC Distribution,Amazon, iTunes, or your local record store.

Praise for …And Star Power

“Everything about Foxygen’s new live show—which they revamped at the beginning of the summer—is as glamorous and aesthetically spectacular as they could have possibly made it. The same is true for their new album.” – Esquire

“Foxygen’s Sam France and Jonathan Rado know how to keep one foot on each side of the line separating barely contained genius from undisciplined indulgence.” – NPR Music’s “First Listen

“California psych-pop band Foxygen sound like a different era. Not a specific different era. Just some time period that is a blur of the ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s, when people didn’t wear shoes and spent their days just spinning in circles with arms outstretched and eyes fixed directly at the sun.” – Vulture [Best New Songs of the Week]

Critics praise the new album,

“(Lia has an) impressively supple voice, which can spiral up into a giddy falsetto and fall crashing to the floor in dolorous rumination within a heartbeat”


“(Lia Ices)… songs have gotten fuller and lusher. Ices’ warm wash of ethereal vocals and electronics belies its chilly title.”

ALBUM ANNOUNCE // Foxygen Announces New Album ‘…And Star Power’ Out 10/14, Shares “How Can You Really” Video Dir. By Grant Singer, On Tour Now

From the band –

Foxygen have joined Star Power. It is a punk band, and you can be in it, too. Star Power is the radio station that you can hear only if you believe. A gaggle of guest stars. Roman-numeraled musical suites. Vocals recorded on a shoddy tape machine at The Beverly Hills Hotel and Chateau Marmont. A svelte 82-minute run time of psych-ward folk, cartoon fantasia, soft-rock indulgences, D&D doomrock and paranoid bathroom rompers. A cinematic auditory adventure for speedy freaks, skull krunchers, abductees and misfits. We’re all stars of the scene.

Ladies & Gentleman, Foxygen is back with their third release …And Star Power, out Oct. 14th (13th in Europe) via Jagjaguwar. The followup to We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic is a 24-song epic journey that picks up right where members Sam France and Jonathan Rado left off. Catch the video for the debut single “How Can You Really“, starring France as he harnesses the power of rock-gods before him. Bonus points for those who spot the cameos from members of Gardens & Villa and Dub Thompson, the latter supporting Foxygen on their upcoming North American tour. Directed by Grant Singer, watch the video above or on Youtube / Vevo.

Pre-order Foxygen‘s new album via SC Distribution, Amazon, iTunes, or your local record store.
