Foxfires just released two new singles titled, “Don’t Give Up” and “Choose Love.” The latter is a campaign and message the band have been pushing for 4 years to move towards a more empathetic, equal, and balanced future where we see past race, gender, religion, sexuality, or political party and to fully embrace all of humanity. “Don’t Give Up” is an anti-suicide song that the band have been adamant about putting out since the recent deaths of Chris Cornell and Chester Bennington.
“The band has been around since 2013, but they really outdid themselves with their new double single “Don’t Give Up”/”Choose Love” – the two songs really showcase what the band is capable of… The song we’re posting for the guys today is “Don’t Give Up” – an uplifting anti-suicide song that’s meant to spread the message of pushing through tough times. Sonically and lyrically – it’s a really uplifting song.” —Alternative Addiction (Feb 23, 2018)
“The Foxfires’ ‘Don’t Give Up’ is a new wave, post punk, Seagaze offering, that’s Strawberry Jam sweet, succinct, and very much fun to listen to…The song is an anthem. A call to their peers and allies to ‘Don’t Give Up’, and to be steadfastly strong…Certainly calls into admiration, their priorities towards other human beings, and friends alike. It’s certainly not a necessary thing to do. But there are times when it can be a good thing…Cool sh*t we say. Kudos guys. Kudos.” —Come Here Floyd, Come Here Floyd (Feb 21, 2018)
““Don’t Give Up” features an encouraging message wrapped in a beautifully bouncy melody and an overall positive vibe. There is also a certain laid-backness to it which only adds to the appeal” —Elke Nominikat, glamglare (Feb 24, 2018)
