FOXING (USA – Triple Crown Records)
If you’ve ever looked at an old document and noticed brown spots on it, what you are seeing are signs of aging. It’s not exactly clear what specifically causes them, but one day, the page will completely brown over and be no more. This is called foxing. A group of St. Louis musicians took this idea and turned it into a band. “From the conception of the band, we realized: we’re not gonna be around forever,” says Foxing singer Conor Murphy. Foxing’s forthright lyrical honesty paired with their stunning orchestral sound quickly started earning them devoted fans, some of whom have been so emotionally moved that they’ve openly wept at the band’s live shows.
TTNG (UK – Sargent House)
Formerly knows as “This Town Needs Guns”. Poking fun at their home city’s low crime rate, Oxford, England math rockers This Town Needs Guns named their band on a whim in 2004. After several line-up changes, and after years of having their band name misconstrued as a real sentiment, they changed their name to TTNG in 2013, just after the January release of their second album, 188.8.131.52.0.
GET OFF MY SHOES (BE – Thanks But No Thanks Records)
Loaded with catchy melodies and sparkly riffs that combine influences from bands such as Bloc Party, Weezer and Foals, Belgian quintet GET OFF MY SHOES create their own sound by mixing synth-laden pop with off-the-hook rock. A sonic equivalent of the sun peeking through the clouds, if you will. Non-pretentious indie with dept, if you need a classification.
