Foxing released their really rather great second album ‘Dealer‘ last year. One of the stand-out tracks was ‘The Magdalene‘ and now you can watch the band perform a near-perfect demo of the track from the cabin where they recorded the record.
The band decided to record ‘Dealer’ in a cabin to get away from the expectation that followed debut album ‘The Albatross‘. Speaking to Upset, bassist Josh Coll explains that the band, “were very isolated, and the sounds started coming naturally as we were writing every day. We didn’t sit and map out the record.
“We used to all get together and jam and write in a linear fashion, but this time we had frameworks for songs. What’s great about that is, you can go in any direction when you have a structure. We were really not expecting it to come out the way that it has done. As that was happening, we all got really excited about breaking new ground.
“We just really wanted to speak from a place of unfiltered honesty,” he continues. “Knowing that people are going to hear these songs and have their own interpretations, or maybe completely misinterpret them, and that’s ok.”
The band are heading out on a US tour in March. Tancred and Adjy support on all dates with Lymbyc Systym* and o’brother+ also appearing.
