About Red Fox Grey Fox
There are a few things I can tell you about Red Fox Grey Fox.
First of all, they are a real band. Well, that should seem obvious enough, but in their several years of existence, they have not swapped members in and out of the unit as expendable components. This has given their craft a strong vitality in which each member brings something irreplaceable to the recipe. It also means they are organic. Sometimes Red Fox Grey Fox’s performances are nearly flawless, other times loose and off kilter. It’s good to know a human heart beat is their metronome, as this most important instrument gets sadly underused in this day and age of auto-everything and detected beats.
Another thing you should know about RFGF is they are unmistakably Midwestern. They sing of mittens (literally and metaphorically), have imagery of snow and ice, and the shimmering of their guitars, keyboards, and cymbals along with Pete’s ethereal falsetto have Minnesota winter written all over them.
One more thing I can tell you about Red Fox Grey Fox is that though they may be a little bit of an acquired taste (let’s face it, they’re not exactly cranking out 2-minute, upbeat pop songs), like most things that are an acquired taste, once you’re hooked you’re a lifer.
Now, I could use a lot of fancy words to try and sell Red Fox Grey Fox to you, but it hardly seems necessary. Their name alone seems to say a lot, and once you hit play on your musical gadget of choice or the lights go down at one of their shows, well, what follows will say the rest.
