F.O.X are a synth pop act from Essex.
Having released 2 albums – their debut ‘Chimera’ and follow up ‘Hypoxia’ the band have gained National and International praise along the way for their eye-popping, high energy live shows, major versus minor songwriting and use of electronics. “It’s a synth-tastic slice of pop – rather like The Gossip might sound if all guitars were suddenly outlawed” – BBC Radio 1 “It feels like you’ve been invited to the great disco on the Sun, and you shall dance on the stars until the grand supernova ends us all.” – 1Q Music
The band are constantly touring the UK and abroad, their ethereal blend of electronics and dark pop gaining them multiple showcases at SXSW festival in Austin, Texas with Gibson making them their band of the festival. Vice, Spin and The Independent praised the band as ones to watch and a tour of 32 states followed with The Deer Tracks from Sweden.
Shortly afterwards the band were invited to support Depeche Mode on their Delta Machine stadium tour playing to over 150,000 people across Europe. Other supports include Dua Lipa, Florence And The Machine and Tom O’Dell.
Their most recent single ‘Half Way To Nowhere’ gained International support including MTV, VIVA and the BBC. It was included in Huw Stephens’ ‘Ones To Watch’ for 2017 broadcast on BBC World Service.
Winning Best UK Live act, they will go down in history as the first live band to play at The Houses Of Parliament. And probably the last…
