Foxygen with Star Power at Flow Festival in Helsinki, 2015 

    When Foxygen announced adieu during their tour last year, it seems some people took it at face value; others understood as Sam France and Jonathan Rado parting ways with Star Power the band. The Californian duo tweeted a mysterious teaser video on Monday featuring France resembling a Bowie persona – the thin White Duke. Two days later, the puzzle became a little less perplexing with the release of “America”. The track is like a roller-coaster ride of all the musical styles that Foxygen is inclined to experiment and a soundtrack to France’s schizophernic facade.

    Foxygen plays at Desert Daze in Joshua Tree this Sunday, October 16th  an 11-piece featuring 5 horn players.
