Nashville-via-Atlanta outfit Fox Grin return to the fold in March following a period of hibernation with new album Dusk; a colourful, kaleidoscopic explosion of bright indie-pop, dreamy psych and vibrant art rock edges.
Primarily based around the pairing of Thomas Chapman (vocals / guitar / keys) and David Bean (bass / backing vocals), the new record follows 2018’s King of Spades, and is sparkling with colourful innovative ideas, strong grooves and pop goodness. Take ‘Broken Watch’ for example. It is an elegant and dreamy slice of sparkling indie-pop, rich in melody and dripping with sunny vibes it dazzles with lush pop orchestration and gorgeous vocal harmonies. This is radiant pop par excellence as Chapman’s hushed, heartfelt and velvety tones are wrapped in a warm, hazy and colourful psychedelic swirl. ‘Skull Candy’ meanwhile, offers a different side to their innovative formula. Glistening guitar lines, chiming keys and annular riffs race and run in tandem with meaty bubbling bassline and propulsive post-punk/krautrock groove to deliver a driving yet dreamy slice of psychedelic-pop peppered with powerful melodies and sweet harmonies. A mesmerising blend of lush pop, dreamy psych and jerky art-rock delivered with an abundance of charm and warm, hazy vibes.
