I will begin this quote with a direct quote from LA Mag – “if Wes Anderson started a band devoted to covering obscure, decades old French pop songs en Anglais seulement, this is what it would sound like.” Not only does that ring true of the sound but also the visual esthetic of this video which reeks of Anderson’s vibrant Kubrickian touch.

Formed in 2005 by two Westlake Village high school kids, Foxygen has risen within an earshot of mass appeal in a very short amount of time. Thier new album, We Are The 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic, came out January 22 on Jagjaguwar and after The Winter Issue of Under The Radar (who’s artists gushed over the lads and placed them in several top album lists) it is fair to say Foxygen has earned their buzz.

This is an all around great clip that underscores the mimed performance of Sam France, who seems to naturally revel in the campiness of it all.
