Seattle’s Fleet Foxes have a unique sound: Part Brian Wilson, part folk explosion, part Coldplay-Muse-U2.
If you want to get hooked on their psyche-strum sound, check out Track 2, White Winter Hymnal. It’ll haunt you for days.
The Fleet Foxes are label mates to the Shins, both on Sub Pop Records (which brought you Nirvana). This is the nature of the new indie rock scene, combining pretty pop with dissonant experimentalism and minimal arrangements. It’s a far cry from punk, but related nonetheless.
If you liked Beach House or even UK’s Keane, you should slide out to the edge of reason and check out the Fleet Foxes first full length record: Fleet Foxes
