NEW ADVENTURES IN POP 006

FOXES! are a quartet from Brighton formed by Kayla Bell (vocals and drums), Adam Bell (vocals and guitar), Al Grice (bass and keyboards), Matthew Twaites (guitar, keyboards and omnichord), accustomed to the single format and who have a new one for us, before they debut their full-length. With a hard-to-classify style, escaping all definitions but full of electricity and imagination, their youthful, fresh sound is a paragon of energy that is hard to come by nowadays.

“The Pandar Bear Song” celebrates sharpened, unbridled guitars full of a vitality that reminds us of the first ARCHITECTURE IN HELSINKI songs, but livelier and more biting, a daring cocktail with doses of GIRLS AT OUR BEST, BERSUIT, BIS, PAVEMENT and APPLES IN STEREO, in a song dedicated to the British presenter Annika Rice. “Alex Badamchi” heads off in a different direction, with a poppier spirit, meandering from dreamy to circus-like, passing through Laetitia Sadier’s and STEREOLAB’s hands, with a constantly broken, unpredictable structure. “Sailors” brings us back to STEREOLAB but this time with an air of THE AISLERS SET, a bridge THE DELGADOS would have been happy to write, and evocative lyrics. To wrap things up, on “Botswana” we find ourselves once again with a song that in little more than three minutes offers us a structure full of completely different parts, with jumps and changes and a hypnotic and contagious rhythm.

Track Name: The Panda Bear Song
As we fly in the helicopter
Watch the bear swimming in the water
I see blue sky but I hear thunder
Stop the hunters call this number

If we want we could save a panda
But we'd have to go to Japan
Heard about some in Uganda
I even saw one once in Canada

What was that you said China
But that's still far away

Press one for whale
Two for tiger
Three for badger and four for liger
Anneka can't you see
That there's nothing left but the bamboo trees
Track Name: Alex Badamchi
Alex Badamchi
Alex Badamchi
Alex Badamchi made me cry

When he said he'd vote for Borderville in the battle of the bands

You've done so much more for us than we ever have for you
Borderville would never write a song like this for Alex Badamchi

You drive us around in several different cars and
you pretend to fall asleep at the wheel

Alex Badamchi
Alex Badamchi
Alex Badamchi made me cry

Alex Badamchi made me cry
Hey Alex, won't you vote for me
Won't you vote me
Track Name: Sailors
So you wanted me to find out everything I could
about the Golden Hind and its Captain too
'Cause everybody remembers their love
'cause your heart is into mine

You wanted and adventure with Poseidon and Neptune
but you don't even mind to decorate your room
'Cause everybody remembers their love
'cause your heart is into mine

Do you wanna find out what it's like
Do you wanna say to me I tried, I really tried,
to take some time, figure out and fool around

The sailors come and the sailors go
They come and go

They'll be choppy waters but don't walk walk walk walk
Keep watching the horizon and we won't get lost
We'll sail the ship together
'cause you know your heart is into mine

Do you wanna find out what it's like
Do you wanna say to me I tried, I really tried,
to take some time, figure out and fool around

The sailors come and the sailors go
They come and go

Timmy Boy you were the worst in school at swimming
Even worse you never talked to women
So you took up Naval Studies but you got the wrong end of the stick
And now you're only chasing boats but you feel seasick

I'll see you in my dreams
Track Name: Boatswain
Oh Boatswain, clear your name

In the night when he falls asleep he dreams about the wire
And when he wakes up in a familiar place
there's no one there to conspire

In the cargo boxes all around the docks the roarers seek and hide
And in the vital case of having lives to save
you can count on him for a while

Fall out,
don't be last in line,
when the rope breaks,
you'll be out of time

In his younger days he was smarter then
the other kids in his town
But he slipped into an anxious state
when no one else was around

Boatswain,
you know it's not too late,
you've had a dip but
it's not the end of it

Going deeper down into the water on his own
Never having ever had to hold his breath so long
Treading through the seaweed with a glimmer in his eye
But secretly he's terrified that he is gonna die

He is gonna die
He is gonna die
