F.O.X are a trio from Colchester who make enormous electro-synthpop tunes.
Having released two albums – their 2013 debut ‘Chimera’ and 2017 follow up ‘Hypoxia’ - the band have gained national and international praise 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.
F.O.X have twice been invited to support Depeche Mode on their European stadium tours - both on Delta Machine in 2013 and Global Spirit in 2017. This resulted in the band playing to over 300,000 people across 8 dates. 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. Their 3rd album is due for release in 2018,
"Sweeping, massive electro-pop" - Supajam
"Tasty!" - Jim Gellatly XFM
