Foxes — Stomp the Earthworm

Thursday, July 23rd, 2015

Foxes channel Eleventh He Reaches London on this taste from Organic Vessels, the Perth outfit’s latest album which is available now on Bandcamp. But whereas Eleventh’s songs were about the build and release of tension, Foxes fast-track the process into explosive bursts of emotion and energy. Foxes have always been about juxtapositions — chaos with harmony, introspection with emotive confession — and on Stomp the Earthworm, the quintet embrace those qualities in full.

Foxes launch Organic Vessels this Saturday at Amplifier with Puck, Statues and Apollo Den.

A Minute With Foxes

Sunday, December 28th, 2014

Before they play New Year’s Evil at The Bakery, we spend a minute with Foxes and find out what’s new…

Describe your music in five words or less.
Sad boys with reverb pedals

What’s going on in the world of Foxes?
Right now I’m listening to Shom laugh at Deal or no Deal. Also, mixing the album while finding money somewhere to finish the album. Supporting one of our favorite bands, mewithoutYou in January and celebrating new years with life is noise OF COURSE.

What motivates you to make music?
I guess it’s wanting to create the same feeling that certain music gives me. Whichever emotion that may be. To be able to pass that feeling onto someone else is a great thing. But if we’re happy and content with the feeling that it gives us, that’s the main thing.

What have been the high and low points of your musical experiences so far?
Meeting Yon from Tripod while on tour. Playing with the Sleepmakeswaves boys is always great. The first holy shit show was probably Break Even’s final show. Walking to the venue and seeing the line spiral around multiple corners before the doors had even opened. The show was insane. Playing with La Dispute/Pianos Become the Teeth was definitely another.

Losing our bassist right in the middle of recording our album was definitely a struggle. But now we have our new bassist, Brigsy. He has heaps of nice boots.

What music are you listening to at the moment?
Right now, Viva Belgrado, a cool Spanish emo band. Recently I’ve been rediscovering how great The Black Heart Rebellion are. A bit of Mastodon and Year of No Light.

If you were stranded on a desert island, which member of the band would get eaten first?
Fraser in 6 months time. Only after he puts on 40kg.

Here’s an opportunity to bitch about something, whether music related or not. What really pisses you off?
Our housemate left us a bag full of spiders when he moved out. It’s sitting in the cupboard and we cant get it out. Help.

You’re putting together your perfect gig featuring Australian artists. Who would you get to play and where? Feel free to include acts/DJs/bands/venues that no longer exist.
Tangled Thoughts of Leaving, We Lost the Sea, Raccoon City Police Department, Ben Frost and Eucalypt.

All bands playing on top of the big prawn in Ballina while King Prawn Fraser rips it up on a BC Rich Warlock.

Foxes join Tangled Thoughts of Leaving, The Devil Rides Out, Scalphunter and Drowning Horse at New Year’s Evil at The Bakery. Tickets on sale now through
