HEADLINING ARTIST: THE FOXIES
The Foxies is an indie pop foursome now prowling a melodic crossroads of new-wave glam, punk rock, and high octane dance-floor fire. Based in Nashville, Tennessee, the band’s roots stretch from the wide-open expanse of Arizona to the tangled urban jungle of New York City, created by front woman Julia Lauren Bullock and featuring guitarist Jake Ohlbaum, bassist Kyle Talbot and drummer Rob Bodley.
Gearing up for more mischief in 2019, The Foxies return February 22nd with the punchy power-pop fantasy “Dreaming” – a decadent, delirious cry out for days gone by and romantic promise squandered. The single will be part of a brand-new EP titled Battery, four energized songs Bullock describes as the band’s most “raw and authentic” incarnation to date. Darker themed, richly textured and crafted with Nashville’s heart-on-your-sleeve creative ethos, the set also includes the quirky cosmic love story “Moon Man,” the connection craving blood pumper “Hand On My Heart” and the piano fueled bad-medicine ballad “Battery”. “We wanted something that opened the door to our world, and allowed the listeners to feel what we feel,” Bullock explains. Battery arrives March 22nd, with much more lying in wait.
OPENING ARTIST: GUTS
GUTS is now a three piece out of Gainesville, Fl. Their unique sound ranges from acapella soul to indie-pop with emphasis on bass leads, percussive elements and vocal harmonies. GUTS is: Kentucky Costellow, Kara Smith, and Samantha Jones.
