Track Of The Day: Foxgluvv – ‘Desperately Seeking Susan’

A sparkling, sultry tune inspired by the 1985 film of the same name: fabulous “hungover-pop” artist Foxgluvv has shared her latest single ‘Desperately Seeking Susan’. It’s the first song to be released from her upcoming debut EP I Never Felt Hollywood, which is set to be released later this year.

As a DIY artist who champions queer music, it’s no surprise that Foxgluvv self-directed the accompanying video to ‘Desperately Seeking Susan’. Speaking about her new track, Foxgluvv explains: “[It] represents the love and admiration I so desperately wanted growing up, as most teenagers can relate to. Being queer, I never saw my ideal relationship portrayed on TV or in films. I was left with a sense of longing and intrigue towards my sexuality and I found myself questioning whether or not I would ever be in a happy, fulfilling relationship. I wanted to write a song that managed to grasp those feelings of uncertainty underneath, whilst masquerading as a typical love song on the first listen”.

Along with Producer Scott Colcombe, Foxgluvv crafts lo-fi, but sensational electronic pop tunes that are memorable for their catchy beats and their emotional content. ‘Desperately Seeking Susan’ is another example of her natural ability to create intriguing and entertaining music that navigates the difficulty of queer relationships, and her longing for love whilst coming to terms with her true identity.
