Everyone’s favourite saxophone-playing Bigfoot Saxsquatch returned to Monstercat today, unveiling his addictive new track “Moondance” with forward-thinking electronic duo, Half an Orange.
The single arrives with a cosmic animated music video, helmed by the award-winning pair. Saxsquatch’s brass mastery is on full display as he draws listeners onto the intergalactic dancefloor with his funky rhythms and pulsating chords. The crisp, upbeat drums and percussive elements from Half an Orange bring a driving house beat to the otherwise jazzy tune. With summer right around the corner, “Moondance” will turn up the heat at pool parties and music festivals.
Saxsquatch shares, “I want to make the saxophone the biggest instrument in music. It’s been such a huge part of my life and I want people to experience it. My goal is to have people leaving my show wanting to learn the saxophone. This track is called “Moondance” because we wanted to get people tapping their big feet. Dancing heals anything.”
Half an Orange adds, “When you see a sasquatch holding a saxophone you think it’s a hilarious meme. Then you hear him play and realize this is a world-class musician. It’s amazing to see someone with nothing but a phone in the woods build such a giant social following. Everyone has reached out to him, from Billy Ray Cyrus to Jack Black. It’s a good message to kids that you don’t need a million-dollar studio to find success in music.”
Saxsquatch is one of the biggest live streaming musicians in the US, with 30 million views on TikTok and 2 million weekly views on his #1 recurring Facebook show, ‘Live From the Woods’.
His unique blend of sophisticated saxophone, smooth basslines, and Bigfoot folklore has catapulted him to viral fame, earning him fans in musicians like Billy Ray Cyrus and collabs like “Maneater” with the legendary John Oates. With support from Forbes, Rolling Stone, NY Daily News, and more, as well as headline slots on Smoky Mountain Festival and the upcoming Holla Yella Festival, Saxsquatch is undoubtedly an instrumentalist to watch this year.
