Foxing is an American indie rock band from St. Louis, Missouri.
Foxing began in 2011 following the end of the group Hunter Gatherer, a post-rock group active from 2008 to 2010 that featured Josh Coll, Jon Hellwig and Matthew Piva. They released their debut album, The Albatross, in November 2013. In 2014, they signed to Triple Crown Records. In the spring of 2014, alongside Adventures, Foxing supported Seahaven on their spring tour. Also in 2014, Foxing embarked on a summer headlining tour alongside The Hotelier. In the fall of 2014, Foxing supported Modern Baseball on their fall headlining tour. In summer 2015, they will be a part of the tour supporting Philadelphia band MewithoutYou’s new album Pale Horse.
When the world last heard from Brad Hale and KC Dalager of Now, Now, they had, on the strength of their well-received 2012 LP Threads, made their late night TV debut with Jimmy Fallon and tour incessantly with bands including Fun., Bob Mould, Naked & Famous among others. Despite the success and acclamation earned up to that point, when it came time to begin work on a follow-up album, self-doubt set in followed by a crippling writer’s block. Following a few years of frustration and introspection, the ice began to crack while tracking the single “SGL.”“I know it’s been a long road,” says KC, “ but I wouldn’t change any part of it. If we had put an album out right after Threads, we wouldn’t have gone through that period of self-discovery. I think we might have made an album that was timid and vague and unchallenging.” Boasting the most direct songwriting and transparent lyrics the band have ever written by a mile,Saved is anything but “timid and vague” . The pair returned to their writing and recording roots for Saved, recording all but one song in their basements together, just as they had back in high school.The only people who know the full extent of the meaning behind the title Saved are Brad and KC, but it’s clear to see salvation for them, at least in part, involved escaping the constraints of their own hangups and insecurities. All so that they might be free to grow into the people and artists we see and hear today on their new album, Saved.
Daddy Issues has mastered the art of keeping it real. The band was originally conceived as a parody Twitter account by three close friends — Jenna Moynihan, Jenna Mitchell, and Emily Maxwell — who decided to turn their 140-character wit into three-minute pop songs. Thus, Daddy Issues was born. Their music lies somewhere between witchy grunge and surf glam– kind of like what the girls from The Craft would sound like if they had opted to start a band instead of Invoking The Spirit. Their lyrics center on a young every-woman who celebrates small acts of rebellion while crushing on boys with blue hair.
