Canadian indie-rock act King of Foxes drop vibrant track “Swimming in the Undertow,” a pop-rock number built on guitar-led soundscapes and singer-songwriter Olivia Street’s poetic yet witty song writing.
Capturing the helpless feeling of being swept along by forces outside of your control, the track juxtaposes existential lyricism about our time on this earth and how we often trade it away in efforts to make a living, with a lively instrumental of fuzzy guitars and crisp drums.
Led by her Street’s bold vocals which carry the poignant message of “Swimming in the Undertow,” with ease, the track is a collaborative piece with producer and multiple Juno nominee Stew Kirkwood as they bring lively sonics together with thoughtful moments.
With two critically acclaimed albums and a third full-length Twilight of the Empireon its way, King of Foxes’ music has earned a reputation for being framed by purpose and understanding. Now, with this latest single, the talented act shows signs of being on the cusp of an enticing sonic evolution.
