Releasing a stunning five-track EP in 2012, Perth hardcore five-piece Foxes have made the most of three years of preparation with a blistering debut album sounding more compelling than anything they’ve produced.
Alex Shom continues to spew emotionally-driven verse over winding instrumentation that’s incredibly persuasive. Frenzied mixes Albino Bambino and Humungous Fungus would have fitted well on La Dispute’s Wildlife, while Stomp The Earthworm is a suitable lead single, pairing catchy guitar strumming and commanding drum beat. Final track, The Wind & The Wallow, builds slowly from ethereal vocals and swirling guitars before chaotically drawling its way out.
