I HEART MOOSIQ PREMIERE:

As turbulently stormy as it is silken sleek comes a spectacular new single named Foe from Andre Tajchman, an independent singer songwriter based in London, born in Belgium. Andre’s first single, Weird Kid, was released in February through the Soho agency Downtown Artists, who specialize in unsigned and up-and-coming artists. Foe is a striking follow up, highlighting the fact that Andre Tajchman is a must watch artist out of the sea of soulful alternative artists to arise this past year. Foe’s buttery slink quickly evokes satiny Chet Faker, but it also stutters and shifts with a haunting trip hop edge brought about by skeletal beats and lonesome guitar that evoke both The xx and SBTRKT. The single’s textured atmosphere and Andre Tajchman’s passionate voice are also redolent of James Blake. Foe is transfixing, a tumultuous force of a genre defying song that Andre describes as being about “the conversation and struggle with his inner enemies". On Foe, Andre Tajchman captures the sheer power and tormenting anguish involved in battling our inner demon… our inept attempts at struggling with our desires. Watch the singer songwriter’s video for Foe below, a somber black and white representation of the compelling song. You can purchase Foe now on iTunes.

OFFICIAL VID: FOE – Xmas Breakup

December 14, 2012

This is great. UK grimy gritty punk rock artist FOE released a holiday tune titled Xmas Breakup. I haven’t listened to her grungy garage alt rock in awhile, and this is a nice changeup from everything else. I love the touch of darkness in this. Gorgeous and satisfying. Here’s to hoping she’ll one day come to California!

OFFICIAL VID: Foe – The Black Lodge

September 21, 2012

UK artist Foe first wowed me when I stumbled upon her featured videos on BBC Introducing. I quickly fell in love with several of her songs. She has a great grungy rock sound that stands out from the rest of the popular rock and pop sounds these days. It’s a nice switchup. Today, she released a video for her song The Black Lodge and it’s as dark and gritty as I hoped. It’s been a long while since I’ve featured Foe on I Heart Moosiq, and now’s about time.

OFFICIAL VID: Foe – Frankenstein

July 18, 2012

It’s been a long time since I first listened to some Foe after stumbling onto her performances for BBC Introducing. Her music is usually very dark, sassy, and grimy rock, but this tune is a sparkling one despite the dark title. The video includes various black and white footage interspersed with actual film footage from the old classic film version of Frankenstein, certainly an iconic moment in Hollywood history. The song will be the B-side for single The Lodge. It seems Foe has been gaining some solid ground in the UK, as expected. I’ll tack on The Lodge and some other songs below as a little re-introduction after not dedicating as much time to her music in a short while. At some point, she’s going to come stateside and stir things up a bit.

Yes, it’s been a long while since I’ve shared anything from FOE, a talented UK indie garage grunge punk-rock artist that blew me away the first time I saw her on BBC Introducing earlier last year or some time before that. It’s so tough to keep up with EVERYTHING. Back then, she didn’t have anything out in the UK. Now, she has a bunch of stuff out and seems to be slowly rising up in popularity. Stream her great remix of Bluebell’s debut single Normal Heights below, and stream her next single The Black Lodge above. Both are very good, but The Black Lodge demonstrates her sound and unique dark tinged rock more, of course. Check out the great original cut of Normal Heights by Bluebell below as well, they’re a great new discovery. I’ll be waiting for FOE to crossover stateside!

Shabazz Palaces remixed FOE

January 31, 2012

Wow, Shabazz Palaces did a reworking of FOE’s Cold Hard Rock and layered in some rap vocals. This works far better than I expected! The original track off FOE’s debut album Bad Dream Hotlineis a great grungy, post-punk track, and the remix is an interesting mesh of that plus indie hip hop.

Cold Hard Rock finally out as a single in the UK

January 9, 2012

But not in the US yet. *sniffle* To celebrate good things happening for FOE, here’s Cold Hard Rock again, and the B-side for the single which a new one I haven’t heard before, One Man Down. Garage grungy rock goodness!

OFFICIAL VID: FOE – Tyrant Song

January 2, 2012

Yes, finally, a version accessible outside of the UK! Here’s the new official video FOE released for grungy, dirty rock track Tyrant Song. She is gearing up for her debut album release, and I’m excited for it. FOE has a great garage rock sound that stands out from all the other acts lately. I’m glad her popularity is starting to grow, and I’m not surprised at all. There’s much talent to be found here.
