Seeking: Label, Film/TV
Style: Indie Rock

This pop-rock project is spearheaded by Oren Elazar, who has a special gift for super-catchy post-punk hooks.  He absolutely knows how to spin simplicity into gold. No virtuosity, just simple post-punk, pop-rocking bliss.  “Autopilot” stands out with its punchy bass guitar and basic keyboard solo. Same with “Wake Up,” another catchy post-punker that conjures comparisons to Franz Ferdinand and even INXS. But “Digital Age,” with its megaphone vocal, infectious guitar and catchy-as-hell riffs, sounds like a dead-ringer for The Strokes, whose early-2000’s garage rock style is loud and clear.  We urge the talented Elazar to update his attack, maybe via keyboard and electronics, and make his Doxy sound distinctive.
