Black Foxxes Post Video For New Single Manic In Me

Monday, 05 February 2018 Written by Laura Johnson

Black Foxxes have released a video for their new single, Manic in Me.

It will feature on their new album, 'Reiði', which is due out on March 16 through Search & Destroy Records, with a UK and European tour set to follow later in the month and during April. 

Speaking about the song, frontperson Mark Holley said:

“This song is purposefully written to have a pop structure, I wanted the song to sway back and forth in a repetitive manor to inject the listener with the hooks. The song is about balancing inner rage and calm; ‘You are the weather’ refers to feeling still and serene amongst another’s company; ‘I am the manic in me’, quickly interjects that, on my own, I can’t control the inner manic. It’s this back and forth that continues throughout the song, quickly transitioning between verses and chorus without any chord changes, keeping the listener guessing which side the coin will land. Calm or manic.”

Tue 22 May 2018
Photo: Holly Whitaker Expectations are constantly being placed on Goat Girl, and they just keep quietly subverting them. The band were hyped by London’s music press before they had released their debut single, while a narrative grew around them as a political garage-rock band that was part of a growing scene in south London. They then signed to Rough Trade, and 18 months later their self-titled debut album was released. Here they finally have an opportunity to let the music speak for itself.
How To Be a Real Adult: Common Holly on 'Playing House' and Finding Your Place
Tue 15 May 2018
Photo: Sean Mundy  “We’re all pretending to be adults on a fairly constant basis.” Brigitte Naggar tells it like it is. Her thoughtful, considered debut album as Common Holly, ‘Playing House’, was released in October last year, and although it jogs down the well-trodden break up path, she covers the difficult ground through sparse guitar textures, unexpected math-rock production and truly relatable twentysomething lyricism.

She may have been mentioned by Rolling Stone magazine in the same breath as Stevie Nicks, and already had her music compared to Linda Ronstadt, Bobbie Gentry and Jim Croce, but Kashena Sampson is capable of standing on her own two feet. Her debut album, ‘Wild Heart’, showcases a singer-songwriter whose artistic authenticity and integrity is increasingly rare in Nashville these days.

Dear Nora - Skulls Example (Album Review)
Thu 31 May 2018
Did Katy Davidson need to bring back Dear Nora? When the project was placed on the shelf in 2008, it had just a handful of records to its name and a presence within the world of west coast DIY indie. Those who would miss it would miss it hard, but most wouldn’t blink an eye. Davidson moved on, enjoying a decade-long spell with Key Losers and Lloyd & Michael while also taking on session and producing work. So, the question remains: why bring back Dear Nora?
Jo Passed - Their Prime (Album Review)
Wed 30 May 2018
‘Their Prime’ is the debut LP from new Sub Pop signings Jo Passed, and it operates as a kind of grunge concept album. Dealing with the gentrification in the band’s hometown of Vancouver, it is a riotous melange of churning guitars and thrashy rhythms, overcast by the fey lyrical mumblings of Jo Hirabayashi.
