Avant-indie band The Foxery has released a gripping new song called “Patmos” with Absolutepunk.net today. The song is featured on the band’s unconventional debut full-length, Unless, which will be released on limited edition vinyl and at digital outlets everywhere on September 9th! Pre-order the album now at iTunes or on limited edition vinyl at the Spartan store and you’ll receive an instant download of the song “Broken Vessels.”
As listeners can tell from “Patmos” and their recently released track “Broken Vessels,” The Foxery is not your typical band. The Louisville six-piece criss-crosses genres, weaving elements of indie and alternative rock with post-rock and punk with a sense of unrelenting intensity.
The band’s vast wealth of eccentric creativity plays a heavy hand on their debut, resulting in bizarre song-structures, offbeat rhythms/riffs and unorthodox layering of vocals among other things. And yet, as peculiar as the music is it’s completely accessible, and draws you into its story with each passing song; as can be heard on “Patmos.”
“‘Patmos’ is probably our best example of complete equal contribution from the entire band,” says guitarist/vocalist Cadillac Young. “Every person in the band wrote a part, and then we placed them all together in a cohesive manner and tweaked each other’s parts until it was what you’re listening to now.”
“It’s a song inspired by growing up in the Midwest and having beliefs and ideas on what happiness is and how it should be achieved shoved down our throats since birth — and then eventually coming to our own conclusion that happiness is an abstract concept that is defined by the individual, and as long as one person’s happiness doesn’t infringe upon another’s, we should all just support each other and work together to enjoy this big ball of dirt and water that we live on.”
“And then again, maybe it’s just a song about how we don’t know anything and we’re just as confused now as we’ve ever been. It’s the second to last song on the record and although we were trying to resolve everything and wrap up on a positive note, we didn’t want to write anything too absolute. Nothing is absolute.”
“Patmos” and “Broken Vessels” are two parts of the greater message conveyed with Unless, which fans will come to realize after listening to the new record.
