Can’t sleep? Neither can Foxgluvv… and for good reason. The unapologetically queer DIY pop starlet has been keeping busy cooking up some new material.
It’s been a long time coming, to say the least: It’s been almost an entire year since the release of her last single “Don’t Text Back,” but thankfully, Foxgluvv fiercely returns with a dreamy disco-pop number called “1:00am” – a shimmering soundtrack for your late night bedroom party-for-one.
The track, co-crafted alongside her long-term collaborator Scott Colcombe, finds Foxgluvv taking her brand of ’80s inspired lo-fi pop to a new level, kicking things up a notch with a cheeky dance-driven production, oozing with camp and extravagance.
“‘1:00am‘ is for when you’ve had a shitty day, your head hits the pillow and your mind is AWAKE,” Foxgluvv told Jon Ali. “Honestly, there is nothing worse than an anxiety-ridden night of ‘sleep’, and I’d been having a LOT of stress dreams around the time of writing. The repetitive chorus lyrics mirror intrusive thoughts keeping me awake, and the disco-inspired four-on-the-floor kick drum narrates that well known feeling of restlessness and frustration that comes along with an uneasy sleep. Honestly, I think ‘1:00am’ came out of pure desperation for a good snooze. (I’m still waiting, lol)”
This is purely a hazy and infectious bedroom banga by our new self-proclaimed Queen Of Insomnia. And, as a person who has trouble sleeping regularly, I find it quite comforting to think that someone like Foxgluvv is wide awake with restless thoughts, just like me.
Foxgluvv’s new single “1:00AM” is available on all streaming services now!
