For The Foxes is gearing up to release their EP, The Revolution, April 24, 2012. The 6 song EP will be available on iTunes.
iTunes will finally be blessed with an actual album from Fox The Foxes come tomorrow. The indie pop EP kicks off with the eclectic “Sinking Like A Stone.” The fakeout slow, piano ballad opening is quickly interrupted by the band’s full rock sound. The catchy “oh oh ohhhh’s” make the song worth downloading, plus the mix off instruments with the hippie vocals make the lyrics worth knowing.
In the previously released “The Revolution.” The fast-paced, emotional track matches lead vocalist’s pure vocals with Jimmy Brindley and Mikey Ballou rapid guitar playing, Danny Vassallo’s intense drumming, and Jonathan Brunner’s bass playing. The lyrics are divinely inspired, including words like “bless” and “biblical.” In the chorus, Dungo’s raw voice begs:
We need a revolution
Why else are we standing here, yeah
Take off our gloves, put down our guns
Til everyone sings
“Kids Too Young” has a cool indie rock vibe to it. The ambient instrumentals help highlight the angelic vocals. In “Moonlight Ride,” the band gets a beachy, Hawaiian theme.” Brindley and Ballou create an island sound with the guitars, while Dungo effortlessly dances around falsetto. The fun “go-oh-oh’s” make for a fun live performance. The song even ends peacefully with the gang vocals of “ooh-way-ohh’s.”
The band slows down in “The River.” The piano ballad gives further proof that not only can Dungo sing almost anything, but the band as a whole is versatile. The emotional track is powerful, from the tinny keys to the high-pitched vocals. It builds in intensity towards the end, then cuts it off with “we just say goodnight,” a cute promise that a permanent goodbye is not an option.
Finally is “Easy Way,” an experimental sounding track. The song features a horn section, filling up the song’s sound. The fun and lively track closes out the EP on a high note. The practically ska track (think Hootie and the Blowfish) leaves the listener with a well-put together party vibe, and assurance that For The Foxes is well on their way to the top of the charts.
