Foxy Shazam – A Dangerous Man

April 22nd, 2008 by


I’m still on the fence about what to think of this band. I’m unnerved a bit because the lead singer has a striking resemblance to my friend Ethan from back home, but that’s beside the point. I was totally blown away by the way Eric Sean Nalls sings; he’s soulful and, at times, downright operatic. The song is laced with piano chords and frantic bits of noise and hardcore. I haven’t listened to anything else from this band yet but from the video I can only hope that, in the flesh, they put on an amazing electric show. By the way, does anyone know what the heck a foxy shazam is? You can check out more from the band on their myspace page.

Editors Note: Thanks to Evan for informing us that “Foxy Shazam” is a slang term from Cincinnati that means “Dope Shoes”.

    I saw Foxy Shazam a few years ago with As Tall As Lions in Hamden (CT). I thought they were interesting, at least, and I do rock out to “The French Passion of Animality Opera” in the car despite not knowing any of the lyrics. I also didn’t know ‘Foxy Shazam’ means dope shoes. Thank you, Retrospective!
