Foxing - Nearer My God (Triple Crown) 2018
Don’t let anybody tell you differently: the world is messed up and it feels that it is falling apart quite fast and there’s nothing you can do to change that.
Foxing’s highly-anticipated third full-length is a conceptual piece created over the course of nearly 3 years, produced by the brilliant Chris Walla (Death Cab For Cutie, The Decemberists) and Foxing’s guitarist and songwriter Eric Hudson, with the help from Joe Reinhart (Hop Along, Modern Baseball). What they created was an album so multi-textured, so bright, brash and bold, striking that perfectly balance between maturity and measured elements of indie rock, avant-garde, R&B and post-everything that you might think of it.
Foxing’s new effort is a “post-apocalyptical melodrama” about a world in constant decay, at least it’s the very personal perspective that vocalist Conor Murphy tell us on Nearer My God. Probably one of the most unexpected treats of the year!
