Moxi are a Los Angeles based indie pop outfit built upon the dreamy, ethereal vocals of Anna Toy and surrounded by the moody, atmospheric keyboards of Andy Toy. Drawing on elements from pop, classic cinema, and 80’s new wave, Moxi present Anna’s distinct vocals against a backdrop of dark electronic textures, innovative guitar sounds and sublime dream pop melodies as can be heard on latest release Figures Bathed in Light.
The duo say Figures Bathed in Light was conceived after the couple escaped a near-fatal car crash. This life-threatening experience empowered them with a wealth of creative energy and the need to create art to immortalize the new found hope they had following this encounter. Anna explains: “Our inspiration comes from a myriad of sources and ideas, but the underlying themes come from our emotional response to art and life experience”.
The track highlights the band’s dreamy, floating quality of music and fascination with the supernatural.
“Behind all the drifting soundscapes, I always build a violence and tension into the music, even if it’s not overtly present at first”, admits Andy. “We bring all of these elements together in a way that is hopefully relatable and memorable because ultimately, we want people to feel understood through our music”.
