Having already made a name for himself as a member of Temples these last few years, Adam Smith has now announced his new project Foxette Moxy with a pair of brand new singles.
The new tracks 'Medicine' and 'What's Youth, Papa?' were self-recorded in many different locations, one being a haunted cottage in Rutland, and see the frontman look to explore pop songwriting through a variety of guises and aesthetics.
Speaking about the new offerings, he said, “’Medicine’ is a song that follows a conversation between a doctor and their patient. As a bit of a hypochondriac myself it seemed like a good subject to write about. It's a soupy number with a silly guitar solo and is as much a soft poke at the pharmaceutical industry as it is a love song.
“'What's Youth, Papa?’ was one of many experiments in using literary techniques as an approach to songwriting. The song takes its source material from Italo Calvino's 'Italian Folktales.' It turned out sounding quite Syd Barrett-like, for better or worse."
