Laura Weinbach and Anton Patzner of Bay Area indie art-pop group Foxtails Brigade, taper down from their usual full-band arrangement to an intimate French-cafe jazz combo. Both seasoned players having toured Europe and the US, sharing stages with bands from the likes of Tune Yards, Bombino, Jane Birkin, Bright Eyes, The Faint and more, the two bring their more hidden but equally engaging talent for elegant French chanson, Golden Era jazz standards and romantic original songs. Following the video release of their live performance of “La Vie En Rose” which garnered an unexpected 6.5 million views and counting, Laura & Anton’s version of the song has been licensed to a multitude of commercials and films including the 2017 movie Blind starring Alec Baldwin and Demi More. The duo made their first silver-screen cameo in Blind as well. Since then, they released their first official EP Live Recordings in April 2019, a collection of romantic French and jazz standards and a few originals performed completely live in the couple’s living room. The album showcases Laura & Anton in their purest form shining through with only the bare essentials - voice, guitar, and violin. The upright bass makes a modest but warm appearance on only a few of the songs. Along with the album, they are releasing a series of live videos that capture the group during the recording of several of the songs off the record. “Dream”, the first video in the series, features their trio line-up with Scott Brown on upright bass and is shot and directed by Dominic Mercurio and Matt Rome. Laura & Anton have also been working on a collection of home studio recordings set to start being released late Spring 2019. Stay tuned for upcoming tour dates.
