K Rose (vocals/guitar), Sean Morel (guitar), Ryan Christianson (drums) and Dakota Seven (bass/guitar) are Bliss Foxx. The band formed a little over a year ago and recently released a three song self-titled EP Bliss Foxx.
The bands sound harks back to a lot of rock bands from the ’90s such as PJ Harvey, Hole, The Pixies and other like-minded artists. Their sound is fun but like a lot of this band it contains some angst, danger and bite.
The band gets rolling with “Not Zen” and Rose gets the vocal delivery exactly right for the music. Musically, we are greeted with some distorted guitars and a steady rhythm section. They don’t waste any time and quickly find their way to the hook. With a good amount of attitude and swagger Rose sings “I'm gonna call you up / I'm gonna call you out.”
Up next is “Tongue Tied” and it is a little more lush. There is a slight shoegaze vibe on this song. The melodies are catchy and Rose really crushes the vocals here. She is dynamic and is able to put on a different inflection quite often but it feels seamless. She can go from spunky to something more intimate sounding with zero problems.
Last up is “Soiled” and the song starts off with a brief guitar intro before going into the initial riff. There are some great riffs here and Rose goes full on spoken word at points. The mood felt like a combination of Courtney Love and PJ Harvey.
This EP goes by in a flash. That being said the songs were cohesive and I got a very good idea of their sound in about ten minutes. I know the band is currently working on an album so If you take a listen you can get ready for some more tunes in the not too distant future.
