[New York, NY – June 30, 2020] – Today, rising artist whiterosemoxie unveils the music video for “applause” – watch here. The 18-year-old’s hypnotic vocals arrive effortlessly on top of a fluttering beat for a uniquely melodic and raw sound. Highlighting themes of loneliness and introspection, the visual captures the moody masterpiece and glimpses inside the inner workings of Moxie’s mind.
The theatrically trained Detroit native may have just finished high school, but his music is starting to resonate with kids around the world. At 18, Moxie, who started making music after a near death experience at 8 years old, is already named Pigeons & Planes Best New Artist of the Month (April). His melodic sensibility and raw energy echoes giants like Travis Scott and the late Juice WRLD. Until recently, Moxie made all his music alone in his basement pulling beats offline, so it’s not surprising that his lyrics are vulnerable and introspective.
whiterosemoxie’s debut full-length studio project white ceilings has only been out for three months but it’s already garnered him the eyes of the industry with over 4 million streams. On white ceilings Moxie paints a picture of the life his friends have lived during high school. The white ceilings they see everyday hanging out in basements become Moxie’s metaphor for removing the ceilings people try to put on his limitless potential.
This is only the beginning for whiterosemoxie.
