Let’s face it. Break ups are tough. And sometimes they’re so tough that you can end up writing a couple hundred rough tracks about it…or, at least that’s the case with Austin’s Jonathan Fox, who’s just dumped a ton of creative energy into his new indie pop project Foxtales. After years playing with his eponymous Jonathan Fox Band, Fox’s overcoming of personal turmoil has turned out to be a perfect companion to his dance-friendly psych-centric tastes, further smoothed out by his impressive multi-instrumental talents and thorough understanding of genre formulas.
With the help of Studio 601 producers Eric Harrison and Michael Ingber, Foxtales has shared their debut four-song EP Crossfade alongside the promise of more tunes and tour dates in the near future. Crossfade‘s release show was last night at Stubb’s but you can still get your tail bushy with the solid groove on “Can’t Escape”!
