Smoke Screens

Pop music has always been reaching new levels with the experimentation of electronics in music that become available so easily, and with the imagination of some genius minds. For Island Fox, experimental pop is their expertise. "Things I've Seen" proves to be the perfect apocalyptic soundtrack, with verses so minimalist and filled with guitars in reverse that it perfectly captures the calm before the storm. The storm is their chorus buzzing with darkened synths that you can only imagine the clouds of a haunting storm swirling above your head reading to rain down the thunder and lighting of your demise.  Island Fox capture anxiety and the darker days with their Hoodlem-like production and the soothing vocals that remind us of Wet and London Grammar. Pure and perfect, yet blackened by empty spaces that eco with chimes of a darker time.
