TVD Premiere: Fox and the Law, “Cheap Talk”

Seattle-based hard-rockers Fox and the Law know exactly what it takes to bring the garage to the ballroom. Their loud, energetic barn burners draw heavily on blues and DIY without sacrificing mainstream appeal, harking back to a time when the Seattle sound was informed by raucous, unchained energy.

We have the pleasure of premiering “Cheap Talk” from their third full length album, Stoned to Death, out 10/21 on Funk Farm. The track blitzes out in an unapologetic stomp of throwback fuzz with the high-pitched vocals of Guy Keltner flying high above the heavy ch-ch-ch-chugging of Peter Williams (guitar), Dan O’Neil (drums), and Patrick Dougherty (bass). The four-piece have perfected the off-the-cuff roughness which critics have applauded as the return of authentic rock.

Listening to this song makes me feel like I’m in the sequel to Dazed and Confused, somewhere in the background drinking a warm beer on the hood of a Trans Am. It has enough psychedelic undertones to make your head spin, with an equal serving of heavy metal, low-end to pin you back to the earth. A perfect retro nugget; begging to boom out of your car stereo as you pull up. A signal that the party has truly arrived.

Having spent more than a quarter of 2013 touring the West Coast and the Southwest, Fox and the Law closed the year out by headlining Seattle’s Psychedelic Holiday Freak Out festival and performing a live in-studio session on legendary radio station KEXP. They plan to spend this summer promoting Stoned To Death, followed by a European tour in the Fall.
