But with the rebirth of EMI's imprint label, I.R.S. records, comes a band whose high-energy live shows and throwback sound preserves the tight-jean-wearing, cigarette-smoking, sex-craving soul of rock music: Foxy Shazam.
During the group's last tour through the U.K., singer Eric Nally and co. filmed a series of videos that showcase the band's mysterious antics. From playing drums on the back of a bus to living life in slow-motion, Foxy Shazam's 'State of Mind (Part 1)' is surely a head scratcher.
"I like watching moving pictures, and I like being in them. It's pretty fun man, pretty fun," Nally tells Spinner of the band's Lynchian short film. After a series of mind-benders, we're treated to a small sample of Foxy Shazam's latest single, 'I Like It.' Sky-high vocals and gnarled guitars invoke the work of producer Justin Hawkins, lead singer of the Darkness. Think Queen with the edge of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club.
Watch out for Foxy Shazam's upcoming second installment of the 'State of Mind' series. The Cincinnati band's newest full-length, 'The Church of Rock and Roll,' will be released via I.R.S. on Jan. 24.
