Foxygen Takes Us Back To The 70s in Upbeat New Track

    The American Girl doll line has kid's specials on Amazon and they're getting some pretty incredible artists to make the theme songs. Last December, Best Coast did a sunny pop song called "Christmas and Everyday" for An American Girl Story - Maryellen 1955: Extraordinary Christmas. And today, we get to hear a song from psych-pop group Foxygen called "Be Yourself" for the upcoming special An American Girl Story - Ivy & Julie: A Happy Balance.

    "Be Yourself" is a bouncy pop track that perfectly suits the story of the film, which follows a 10-year-old Chinese-American girl around San Francisco in the 70s who is insecure about having two cultural identities. Frontman Sam France said in a press release, "We wrote our song inspired by 70s television show theme songs. It is also a special song because it is the only Foxygen song so far to feature [Foxygen co-founder Jonathan] Rado on lead vocals in the first verse." With such a chimey, horn-laden track, it's impossible to not be in a good mood.
