From the small town dystopia of Mid-Michigan come grungy, emotive indie pop punk rockers FOXHOLE. Featuring clever guitar interplay characteristic of sophisticated indie rock, they are unafraid of big, loud pentatonic guitar solos à la Dinosaur Jr. The drums and bass are tight and booming, providing a solid landscape for textural melodies. Their new single “Outside Source” is a promotional single that follows their self-recorded and produced EP “Nocturnal” and the first forerunner of their upcoming debut LP on Smog Moon Recordings.
“Outside Source” is a look at coping mechanisms and self-destructive habits. It neither glorifies, nor condemns any method of self-help. Rather it speaks from a first-person perspective about the experiences of medicating irresponsibly. The serious face of this song is not one that Foxhole wears constantly, but also isn’t one the band hesitates to try on.
FOXHOLE takes the accessible elements of modern pop punk (Title Fight, The Wonder Years) and boils them back down to the influences of primordial ‘90s emo groups like Jawbreaker and Pinkerton-era Weezer. The result channels the energy and the authentic feel of the 90s, while putting their own spin on the various styles.
Catch the band live on October 26th at The Music Box in Jackson, MI.
