Frequent readers of this blog may remember that I first alerted you about rising pop sensation Moxie earlier this year when I reviewed her debut track "Bad Decisions." That tune was not marked as a single, but rather intended as a tastemaker to introduce the world to the singer's story and sound. Moxie follows that first effort with this brand-new "Dirty Lights" that gives us a few more clues about who Moxie is (and what she looks like). Moxie's project has been under wraps for a while, but she is starting to unveil all her hard work now bit by bit, one by one.
Not much is known about Moxie but Brain Records' web site writes that when Moxie was 13-years-old, she left home to live with her sister in New York City and pursue her dreams of breaking into the music business. Within a few years, she met music producer Freddy Wexler who invited her to join him and a group of other talented upstarts in The Brain House. Moxie's debut R.P.Y. project includes production work by Freddy Wexler (Lil Wayne, Selena Gomez, Bridgit Mendler, Demi Lovato) and Benny Cassette who also worked on Kanye West' Yeezus.
"Dirty Lights" is pretty good indication of where she's heading both musically and lyrically. Much of Moxie's personal storytelling deals with falling in the love with someone from the wrong part of town that leads to a steamy romance before it all epically falls apart. "Dirty Lights" emphasizes the distance that is created when you fall in love for the wrong reasons. Director Bryan Dos Reis vividly brings that message to life in the video for the song with grand imagery of downtown Los Angeles featuring two characters who seem so close yet are so lost in the urban jungle. Stay tuned for more news about Moxie soon.
