Young Fox are gearing up for the release of their upcoming album, Sky Beats Gold, due out 3/10 and today, have released their newest track “We Move As Waves”.
Two years after the release of their impressive debut EP (Predecessors), Young Fox returns with Sky Beats Gold, a beautifully layered and moody discourse aimed directly at perpetual questions. The material vs. the immaterial. The closing gap between what we’ve become and what we’ve feared. Empty hands and empty hearts. The darker spectrum of the human experience.
Sonically, Sky Beats Gold mirrors its brooding thematic aesthetic to near perfection. Dark and driving drums lay the foundation for intricate guitar work, and aggressive instrumentation combines seamlessly with soaring and confident vocal melodies. Each moment is purposeful; an impressive balance of cause and effect. Translation: a big rock record. The drive of Thrice with the complexity of Sunny Day Real Estate. The accessibility of Foo Fighters with the emotion of Manchester Orchestra. The album also features a cameo from Stephen Christian of Anberlin on the track “Slow Burn.”
“All around we were shooting for something heavy, ambient, and dynamic,” says bassist Callan Carnahan. “We built one of the baritones that was used on nearly every song, and the low register adds a super heavy, punchy feel to the record. That combined with various drop tunings added this huge, deep timbre to the songs that really resonates with the feel of the album and the lyrical content.”
