Modern Moxie are an indie pop/rock band from Charlotte, North Carolina and their new single is titled “Weeping Willow“. The band describe the song as being about missing your childhood and the deep connection to nature that can be lost with your youth.
The band is fronted by multi-instrumentalist Madison Lucas, her husband and bassist Harry Kollm (Time Sawyer, Asleep in the Weeds, Jon Linker Band), the guitarist who also officiated their wedding, Phil Pucci (Pullover, Serfs, Landless, Ernie) and the drummer from Serfs, Charlie Weeks. The band also work with producer Kenny McWilliams, who produced Madison’s 2011 debut solo EP Bedroom.
2019’s Claw Your Way Out was the band’s debut project, with their new track “Weeping Willow” serving as the second single from their upcoming sophomore project, a 5-track EP titled Gutter Honey that arrives in March next year.
Speaking about how the song came about, the band say the song is about “a yearning for time spent climbing trees and being disconnected from the terror and turmoil of the outside world. Madison’s younger brother was diagnosed with MS at only 23. This song was written during a traumatic time when he had an extreme flare up after an experimental treatment and was in the hospital“.
