Moxiie (with two 'i's) is one of those so underrated artists with so much potential to be great, it's criminal. Let's add it to our collective list as a Resolution for 2016: no more with that B.S.
Her brand of 'Jungle Pop' (also the title of her 2011 EP) feels both familiar to the scene and totally fresh. Overall, her sound is dance-floor friendly but she lends herself quite well to this burgeoning dark disco movement. So much of her music is so multi-layered, allowing her vocal performance to stalk her proverbial prey, calculated and contained.
Her snare-drum thrashing dance stomper "Animal" was one of my favorites when it came out and since then she's been releasing great jam after great jam. "Anyway" quietly lurks with a electronic bass thrumming throughout. "Jilted" soars with an emotional delivery over a lush, electric mid-tempo beat.
Her latest -- "Chaos" -- a heart-wrenching ode to moving on after losing someone is yet another triumph. The lyrics are movingly picturesque and she sounds incredible.
Moxiie is offering "Chaos" (along with an alternate version of the beautiful ballad) for free through her social media accounts. You can download the song here. Do it now. You won't be disappointed.
I can't wait to hear what's next. My fingers are crossed for tour dates -- something tells me she'd be so much fun to see live on stage.
