After releasing their debut EP in 2015, Northampton quartet FOX CHAPEL return this week with brand new single Ice Cream.
The band consists of members, Kailan Price (vocals and guitar), Calam Wright (guitar), Joel Daw (percussion and samples) and Jonny Longland (bass), who create a “psychedelic wave of dystopian energetic post-punk”.
Ice Cream is a psychedelic track, filled with boppy, jangly guitars, undermined by banging drums and deep, husky vocals. Vocalist Kailan Price’s unique voice works impressively with the pace of the instrumental side of the track. Showing clear similarities to bands such as The Cure and The Clash, it’s clear where Fox Chapel got some of their influence from.
The more instrumental led B-Side Dead Flowers takes a heavier approach but appeals just as much as the first track, with explosive, crashing percussion and gritty guitar through the course of the track. With a gloomier sound, this is surely something to listen to while you’re scooping the flesh out of your pumpkin.
We are loving these tracks from the band and can’t wait to hear more of what they’ve got to give.
This weekend will see Fox Chapel play a sold out hometown gig at the Roadmender on Friday 21st October, and the 22nd sees them perform at The Shacklewell Arms in London. On October 27th they play with Trudy and the Romance at the Sunflower Lounge, Birmingham. You don’t want to miss these.
