FOXES! are a quartet from Brighton formed by Kayla Bell (vocals and drums), Adam Bell (vocals and guitar), Al Grice (bass and keyboards), Matthew Twaites (guitar, keyboards and omnichord), accustomed to the single format (they already have four in their discography) and who have a new one for us, before they debut their full-length. With a hard-to-classify style, escaping all definitions but full of electricity and imagination, their youthful, fresh sound is a paragon of energy that is hard to come by nowadays.
“The Pandar Bear Song” celebrates sharpened, unbridled guitars full of a vitality that reminds us of the first ARCHITECTURE IN HELSINKI songs, but livelier and more biting, a daring cocktail with doses of GIRLS AT OUR BEST, BERSUIT, BIS, PAVEMENT and APPLES IN STEREO, in a song dedicated to the British presenter Annika Rice. “Alex Badamchi” heads off in a different direction, with a poppier spirit, meandering from dreamy to circus-like, passing through Laetitia Sadier’s and STEREOLAB’s hands, with a constantly broken, unpredictable structure. “Sailors” brings us back to STEREOLAB but this time with an air of THE AISLERS SET, a bridge THE DELGADOS would have been happy to write, and evocative lyrics. To wrap things up, on “Botswana” we find ourselves once again with a song that in little more than three minutes offers us a structure full of completely different parts, with jumps and changes and a hypnotic and contagious rhythm.
They’re a surprising, imaginative group that makes pop out of fantasies and opens all possible doors.
