With their summer tour rapidly approaching and the release of their latest single ‘Been Busy’ putting them squarely back on the radar of many, Sydney’s Thunder Fox have gone one step further, dropping their long awaited debut album, LOVE AT FIRST SNIFF.
A collection of music that comes wrapped in dedicated grooves, swagger drenched arrangement and vocals that are so easy to sink into, Love At First Sniff is Thunder Fox at their creative best. A perfect snapshot of the six piece group, who have taken the experiences of the last few years flourishing on the road, presented with cheekiness and charm.
Released ahead of their national Australian tour, the album is Thunder Fox’s introduction to newcomers to the fold and for longtime fans, a gift.
Recorded in Sydney with Daniel Willington (ILUKA, Battlesnake) and Steve Smart (Northeast Party House, City Calm Down) on mastering, the 13-track album is perfect for fans of artists including Anderson .Paak, Hiatus Kaiyote, Vaudeville Smash and D’Angelo. Recent single ‘Been Busy’ is exemplary of the album’s moments of introspection, while Thunder Fox remain playful with tone, nostalgia and romanticism in their work throughout the album.
From ‘Baby I’m Famous’ to ‘Squeedup Vol 2’ and ‘Look At U’, we hear different sides of the band’s artistry. Of course, a band like Thunder Fox is going to be known for big personalities and energetic and entertaining live shows. Still, when you listen to how each album track weaves together, a wider picture of the band’s love for expressive, groove-laden music – not to mention whipsmart songwriting – becomes ever clearer.
