Music Monday: Harris Breyfogle, FOXY MOJO, Tennis, NFA, and Early James

Guitarist Harris Breyfogle has released his new single “STILL FEEL LIKE I’M LOSIN’ YOU”,” from his upcoming full-length album Complexus.

Harris Breyfogle was born and raised in Virginia and began his musical journey early on, dabbling with multiple instruments before choosing to become a guitar player. Inspired by the sounds of his father’s Fender and his guitar heroes (such as Eric Clapton), Breyfogle kick-started his guitar career by attending Berklee College of Music.

 

El Paso-based, Indie/Rock ‘n Roll quartet FOXY MOJO announce and invite listeners to “STAY FOXY,”  with their video, “Till the Morning Light” from their sophomore album REVIVAL.  “‘Till The Morning Light’ wastes no time getting you amped up and when the catchy guitar-licks kicks in you have no choice, but to tap your feet with vigor. ”

(Pancakes and Whiskey) The album title acts as both a summary of the band’s journey from misfortune and as a mission statement to their goal of “reviving” an ever-loved yet left behind era of indie rock now swallowed up by synth and upbeat summer tunes. With festivals like SXSW and Street Fest and numerous local shows under their belts, FOXY MOJO are ready to take their music to an even larger fanbase. REVIVAL  took root with singer Tristian London composing songs on his iPhone’s well-known recording app Garageband.

 

Acclaimed indie-pop duo Tennis has unveiled “Need Your Love,” the new single from their highly anticipated fifth studio album, SWIMMER, via a video shot and directed by longtime collaborator Luca Venter.

“’Need Your Love’ is rooted in anger,” says Alaina Moore. “I usually deny myself the emotion, but the music demanded intensity from me and I had a lot to be angry about at the time. I was letting go of unhealthy relationships – trying to find healing without closure. The song turned into an emotional purge. We used sparse instrumentation and tempo changes to reflect the isolation and relentlessness of my mental state. Despite all the heaviness, writing this song was a joyful experience. The music was resilient enough to handle our wildest ideas and we indulged every whim. It’s my favorite song Patrick and I have written.”

 

Hailing from the 305, Miami-Bred rapper NFA is redefining the sound and vibe of hip-hop and urban Latin music. The Cuban/Puerto Rican lyricist released today his new single, “Dale” featuring singer/songwriter Andrez Babii (XXXTentacion, DJ Snake). In addition to “Dale”, NFA also released a second track also featuring Babii, “Castigo”. Produced by the Miami-based production team, PLYBCK and composed by NFA and Babii themselves, the songs are available now across all digital streaming and retail platforms.

The artist also premiered the official music video for “Dale” on his YouTube channel which was filmed in the city of Miami, FL. Last week, NFA joined forces with DJ Dynamiq (Syndicated Radio DJ and official DJ of the San Francisco 49ers) on the release of his new single, “Sucia”.

 

Early James the Alabama native and latest signing to Dan Auerbach’s Easy Eye Sound roster, shares the music video for “It Doesn’t Matter Now,” his latest single off Singing for My Supper (Easy Eye Sound, 3/13), via an interview with Billboard.

Early James releases his debut album, Singing for My Supper, via Easy Eye and Nonesuch Records on March 13, 2020. The album spans hard-charging blues, wistful folk, and ages-old pop crooning, anchored by the singer’s voice that oscillates from a gravel-gruff shout to a honey-smooth whisper. James’ inspirations run from Fiona Apple and Tom Waits to the Southern gothic poets, as heard in the album’s darker themes and in the wry humor with which he writes about them. Singing for My Supper is available for pre-order on all formats here.
