Single release/Interview with Good Foxy by Kelly Munro
Tell us how long you’ve been making music…
Good Foxy : “We’ve been making music as a band since 2013, (when we were just 16 years old). After all meeting up at the same college in Blackburn.”
What’s been some of the highlights, so far, on your musical journey?
“I’d say our high points over the years have been supporting acts such as Status Quo to over 10,000 people. But our most cherished moment would be playing prestigious festivals such as Beatherder and Y-Not festival, also when we played The Great Escape festival in Brighton!”
We hear shades of Joy Division in your sound amongst others. Who are the band’s musical idols?
“We certainly do love Joy Divison, other influences include Echo and The Bunnymen, The Velvet Underground along with current acts such as Tame Impala, and we certainly can’t understate the influence Arctic Monkeys will have had on our music.”
Tell us more about the single. Is there a meaning behind the song? Story attached to it?
“Yeah, so essentially, the song ‘Dust’ deals with one of the main themes from the album – leaving this world both figuratively and metaphorically. The song tackles the mundane existence we often lead and offers an escape from daily life. Within the song, it follows the journey of a young couple, who decide to take a trip to another planet but get lost on their way there…”
What albums do you never get tired of listening to?
“Our favourite albums currently would have to be;-
Josh Rouse – 1972 (featuring an amazing track called ‘Love Vibration’) the vibes on the album just make you feel like strolling down the street on a fresh summers day.
Broadcast – Tender Buttons, This very experimental album gave us the realisation that we don’t have to conform to anything when writing music structurally, merely just follow the crazy sounds that lead the way.
What can we expect from you this year?
“This year we intend on pushing the release of our new album ‘Planets Over There’ and getting some decent airplay, which will set us up nicely for when we come to tour the album at the start of next year (providing the current world situation he improved by then). We’re also going to be writing a few new singles to get to work on in the studio next week… “
