Foxing has announced a new partnership between their recently-minted label, Grand Paradise, and Hopeless Records. To celebrate, Foxing has shared a new song and video in “Go Down Together“.
The St. Louis group takes a bold turn towards Passion Pit/Phoenix/MGMT/’00s indie on the track, as vocalist Conor Murphy muses on being a young adult in debt (“ever since I got going, I’ve been going for broke“). A nod to “The Trail’s End” by Bonnie Parker, “Go Down Together” is a song about devotion and desperation. It is about financial ruin, hopeless grief, and the resilience of love.
The video for “Go Down Together” was co-directed and partially animated by Conor himself in a process called rotoscoping. First, everything is shot live-action and then each frame is drawn over individually to bring the footage to life in a totally different way.
