“End of My Rope” was released as a single in the fall of 2021, and it quickly becoming a fan favorite, leading the band to create the poignant, old-timey music video with a girl-power twist, which dropped February 17th.
The video, set in an old-fashioned Western saloon, showcases lead vocalist Carly Bricks Smith having repeated frustrating interactions with men at the bar, eventually leading her to band together with a group of women who are also ready to take their power back. The video climaxes when the women, finally having had enough, force the men out of the bar. “I’m vicious, this is warning,” croons Bricks Smith in a final stroke of fury.
“End of My Rope” was written by Bricks Smith and Foxfeather’s co-founder/co-writer, Laura Stratton, after a particularly difficult year dealing with changes made to the band. The song was written from a place of disheartenment, but is now visual proof of how far Foxfeather has come and where they plan to go.
Foxfeather began with Bricks Smith and Stratton, who bonded over a mutual love for music in high school. The pair began writing together back in 2005, leading them to officially begin Foxfeather in 2013 in Boulder, Colorado.
The band now includes Blake Smith on lead guitar, Mark Dabrowski on bass guitar, and Jay Elliot playing the drums/percussion. Foxfeather is preparing to release their full-length upcoming album, The Nature of Things, later in the year.
