‘So Excited’, the latest single from Brooklyn indie artist Foxanne, is the bold, upbeat antithesis to “cool kid” apathy. The song is an unapologetic ode to being shamelessly yourself as Foxanne belts out “I just want to be embarrassingly honest to me”. Foxanne, a songstress and science writer, was inspired by her many experiences feeling like the odd one out for expressing her unbridled enthusiasm.
Foxanne is “both sensuous and original in nature,” as described by John Pfeiffer of the Aquarian. Foxanne is an independent, Brooklyn-based artist pushing gracefully through musical boundaries. Foxanne has been likened to artists including Maggie Rogers, St. Vincent, and Jenny Lewis. This spring, Foxanne released their debut studio EP, Halfling.
In this record, lead singer and guitarist Foxanne carefully lilts through delicate lyrics as the band swells and intimate whispers grow to a room-shaking vibrato. Mike Harris uses the synthesizer to add depth and artful soundscapes to the ever-changing dynamics as Juilliard-trained Andrew Funcheon uses a variety of percussion instruments and mallets alongside a traditional drum kit to truly bring the songs to life. When Foxanne is not in the studio or on the stage she is writing for science-related publications. She applies her scientific background to music in a way that is as detail-oriented as it is boundlessly passionate.
