Foxing - Dealer (Triple Crown Records) 2015
Foxing is not a band that can fit in a specific scene, the way they portray art goes beyond any kind of breaking boundaries type of genre or scene. Emotion-driven, full of details and crafted to perfection, with Dealer the St. Louis quintet goes deep into what emo should really sound like nowadays, but the thing is, if they don’t fit in any specific scene or genre, how to label and understand something that cannot be labeled? Can we say that they are a post-emo-indie-poetic-alternative-rock band? Yes, we can… There is no way to approach Foxing music without mentioning acts like Sigur Rós, Shearwater, mewithoutYou or even The Hotelier. Their esque almost reaches perfection and it’s a journey that not everyone is ready to ride on. Dealer is an honest slice of deep human emotion, their lyrics push our senses to the limits and they deserve your fully, almost exclusive attention.
