Every Monday through Friday, we deliver a different song as part of our Song of the day podcast subscription. This podcast features exclusive KEXP in-studio performances, unreleased songs, and recordings from independent artists that our DJ’s think you should hear. Today’s song, featured on The Midday Show with Cheryl Waters, is “I Know You're Charming” by Fotoform from their 2017 self-released self-titled album. Fotoform - I Know You're Charming (MP3)

It's pretty appropriate that Kim House, frontwoman for Seattle shoegaze band Fotoform, happens to gaze at shoes for a living, as footwear design director at Nordstrom. The band layer gauzy guitars and ethereal vocals, all laced up with a UK post-punk influence.

Fotoform just released their debut LP earlier this year, but they have a longer history in the local music scene under the name C’est la Mort. You may also recognize drummer Garrett Croxon behind the kit for Fleet Foxes and Erik Blood.

There's no Seattle date on the calendar as of the moment (though you may have caught them at the Seagaze Festival back in April). If you happen to be in Los Angeles on Sunday, August 27th, you can catch them at a Part-Time Punks night at the Echoplex with fellow Northwest band The Prids. Follow them on Facebook to stay in the loop, and go behind the scenes with the band below, in a video produced by Nordstrom:
