With a punchy bassline that sounds as sweet as something that Peter Hook would cook up, The Foxfires latest track Don’t Give Up is a high energy Post Punk Masterpiece, drenched in resonant yet upbeat vibes away from the usual melancholy of the genre.
The Jangle Pop guitars made a Mancunian such as I feel right at home as I soaked up the powerful riffs of the guitar that mesmerise you under one of the tightest drum beats you’ve ever heard. Everything about the New York based collective The Foxfires is just sensational. They will be joining bands such as Slowdive and My Bloody Valentine on my Shoegaze playlists with their pioneering ‘seagaze’ sound. Their synergy is electric, and the sentimentality behind the track is heart wrenchingly warming. Don’t Give Up was released on Valentines Day 2018 and I can’t help finding that absolutely adorable.
