Northwest Music Spotlight – Fleet Foxes!

“Their delightful, pop-styled songs sounded tight but not rigid and got the crowd swaying along straightaway. With bell-toned guitars, bright keyboards, and a dash of shimmer round the edges, the Fleet Foxes craft deliciously melody-driven songs that are intensely charming. Lyrics reference textbooks, classrooms, and Romeos on bicycles, all without sounding twee or absurd. And Robin’s voice brings it all together – his vocals are sweet and yet solid, with a rich warmth that seals the deal.” – Imaginary Jessica, read more

We’ve been enjoying the Fleet Foxes demo quite a bit. Check out some songs…
