King of Foxes offers up something of value: a musical divining rod that pulls the listener to an inner river that is at once both familiar and uncanny. Delivered in a voice that is equal parts fierce and fragile, frontwoman Olivia Street’s lyrics are poetic and evocative, deftly interwoven with seeing-eye guitar hooks and a cogent understanding of songcraft. The latest release, Salt & Honey (2019), demonstrates a signature sound is quirky and textural, incorporating elements of Brit-pop and melodic indie rock that inform a well-read musical style. King of Foxes has drawn comparisons to Alvvays, Vampire Weekend, and Juliana Hatfield, but retains an edgy and playful persona. Lush with layered guitars, infectious vocal melodies, and “instant indie-rock cred,” King of Foxes is one to watch.
