Listening to Kid Moxie (née Elena Charbila) is like falling asleep while watching a dark surrealist drama. Her lyrics are both narratively rich and beautifully absurd. Her voice reverberates icy and sweet through dreamy synthesizers and new wave beats. The filmic quality of Kid Moxie's music is no coincidence. The Greek-born, Los Angeles-based singer has been delving into the roles of dual mythic women--the Film Actress and the Pop Star--since she was young. This work converges into what she calls "Cinematic Pop," tracks and music videos perhaps more attuned to dark, velvety movie theaters than radio airwaves and MTV.
Her new album, Perfect Shadows, is available for pre-order now, and Flaunt got a sneak peak of her new single, "Still High:"
After listening to the enigmatic silver screen pop dreamer's new single, we had to ask: hey Kid Moxie, what's in yr fridge?
I go to this book for inspiration when writing lyrics. plus, i have a an endless affection for Joy Division and anything that has to do with Ian Curtis.
My two bass guitars. Bass is the instrument i love the most. I am at my happiest when i m not singing and not in the spotlight, but simply playing bass live with a band.
My freezer. just booze and ice cream. they have been probably sitting there for over a year.
A ceremonial object and a small toy, both from Guatemala from the late 1800’s. I call them Fernando and son.
My most precious possessions have to be my two turntables and my records. I love jazz and that just sounds better on vinyl.
A music box that i have had in my room since i was a kid. equal parts creepy and sweet.
