With a full length record, as well as two EPs in their six years as a band, New York indie act The Foxfires are no stranger to working hard. The band has also played in the area of some 500 shows at this point, and know that it takes a constant drive to make it as a band. That hunger comes out in their music, as well, as we can hear on their single, “Matchless Part Two”. With some of the elements that have made bands like Phoenix and The Suburbs popular, The Foxfires know how to draft an energetic, catchy indie rock song.”

““Brooklandia” is a psychedelic track that we can’t get enough of. The rhythmic attitude and chill rock vibe takes the listener on a journey through the hypnotizing and mellow rock sound arrangements. “Brooklandia” has slight undertones of alternative blues and soulful roots. I think “Brooklandia” can be interpreted differently depending on the listeners situation. The pummeling guitar, echoing vocals, surf-rock vibes and overall chemistry on “Brooklandia” are a brilliant indication of what’s to come next for The FoxFires. I highly recommend you check out this track and the entire trilogy Stay on the lookout for The FoxFires.”

New York’s The Foxfires are blazing through 2018 like an unstoppable force. The group who have been making waves with their newest release “Don’t Give Up/Choose Love”, have quickly become a favorite of fans and critics alike.”

“Matchless Part Two” is filled with synergy pulsating with an ambient driven sound tinged with a soulful dissonance that combined is a jarring experience. Commandeering a rich retro style that recalls a psychedelic surf and garage rock feel, The Foxfires have a foot in the past while also brandishing a more modernized approach. Incorporating the best out of both worlds shows the band appealing to fans of oldies and classics without alienating more contemporary fans. As their singles are any indicator, The Foxfires are a great live band. Having performed over 450 shows across the East Coast, South, and Midwest, their energetic live performances are show-stopping, leaving audiences pumped and wanting more… The Foxfires’ blend of folk/pop, surf-rock and shoegaze is out of this stratosphere, so be sure you stay tuned!
