Divus Julius presents: Black Foxxes

Black Foxxes are an English indie rock band from Exeter, England. Formed in 2013, their sound has been described as “a mix of ’90s grunge and indie rock with early-2000s emo and alt-country elements.

Weeks ahead of their self-titled, third album, alternative UK band Black Foxxes have shared the new track “Jungle Skies,” alongside a black-and-white visual, directed by the Bristol-based filmmaker Ciara Flint. The song finds the trio’s songwriter and frontman, Mark Holley, painting a starkly honest picture of depression.

Hit Of The Week: Royal Blood “Trouble’s Coming”

Royal Blood have shared “Trouble’s Coming”, the rock duo’s first new track since releasing their 2017 album How Did We Get So Dark?.

Serving as a sample of the Brighton band’s forthcoming third LP, “Trouble’s Coming” adds a bit of glitz to their grit. It pulls in influences from Daft Punk and Justice, turning Royal Blood’s usually hammering sound into something much groovier. According to the band, the muscular dance floor style of the song set the groundwork for the rest of their new LP.

Best Covers: James Blake “Godspeed”

James Blake helped Frank Ocean make a classic. Back in 2016, Ocean released his album Blonde, and James Blake co-produced and played on a handful of songs from the LP. One of those songs was the wrenching, beautiful ballad “Godspeed.” Blake co-produced, arranged, and played keyboards on Ocean’s version of “Godspeed,” and now Blake has released his version of the track.

4EVER SONGS: FISCHERSPOONER ‘Emerge’

Warren Fischer and Casey Spooner formed Fischerspooner as a performance art project in New York City in 1998. Following the single “Emerge” and their breakthrough album #1, they earned a loyal following in the New York club scene and Europe. Over the course of their career, Fischerspooner incorporated various multimedia, costumes, and additional artists into their work, with the group at one point comprising 20 performers.

The Muses of La Musa: OKLOU

A 2016 Red Bull Music Academy alumnus, Marylou Mayniel’s beguiling music has soft edges but a stone-hard core. The Parisienne’s unique sound is the product of a rich and varied musical upbringing, having started playing piano at five and only warming to the digital comforts of Logic in 2012.  With the release of her EP Rite of May in early 2018, the producer, vocalist, and composer, taps into childhood memories to produce emotionally charged electronic pop. A DJ and founder of the radio crew TGAF (‘These Girls Are on Fiyah’), the London based artist has already made significant strides in the electronic world and as demonstrated by her latest work, will continue to do so. She’s just released her brand new album ‘Galore.’
