Foreignfox release powerful new single "Fractions"

Edinburgh based Foreignfox have recently released their powerful and emotive new single "Fractions", which is the band's second tune of the year.

The intro to the tune reminds me a lot of Lonely The Brave's first album with the vocals and shimmering drums paving the way for the track and laying down a solid foundation for it to blossom. Once the guitars come in after the first minute you're welcomed into a world that sounds so vulnerable with the soaring guitars sounding like they're reaching up into the upper atmosphere.

The track doesn't stop there, it's ever-evolving minute by minute and after three and a half minutes is quite far from what we were hearing in the opening minute. If there's something we adore, it's how a band can have more than one major genre in a track, and how they can transition so easily between them all.

When "Fractions" starts the final minute we're welcomed with tumbling guitars that are just screaming out mid 00's indie, it's a mix between Muse, Bloc Party, and Editors all in one.

The band has easily made a solid following for themselves, mainly down to the singles they've previously released but also with the love they've received from BBC Radio Scotland, and multiple festivals and shows such as T in the Park, St Lukes All Dayer, and XpoNorth. You NEED to keep an eye on these lot, mesmerising, soaring, and atmospheric all wrapped in one epic track - we just love it.
