StonedFox is a solo project by a guy in Brooklyn who from my research goes by Fox for this project. His DIY effort StonedFox EP is a four-song EP which gives us a little taste of his talent and style. I was enjoying the music right off the bat.
His songs are atmospheric with a lot of clean elements but also a lot of reverb. Take for instance the opener “bury me” which has slightly morbid lyrics on paper but they didn't feel like that within execution.
He sings, “Theres a hole is my soul I cant fix/ I'm fading out fast and I hope I die quick.” It’s a pretty catchy song. It took me a couple of listens to seep in but when it did I was thoroughly enjoying the arguable highlight.
Up next is “ghosts” which is another solid song. His voice sounds almost as atmospheric as the music. The song has some serene moments and some of the sparest are the strongest. “Lovers” relies on a strong hook where he sings “tonight we could be lovers” while “skeletons at the heart” is the most dynamic song which starts off soft and minimal and eventually gets to the powerful ending.
There isn't much on this EP but there is enough where he built a solid foundation with his music. I thought the four songs were cohesive and each song shared similar aesthetic.
Overall, this is a solid EP which certainly made me think that he was one to watch. The production was good and so was the songwriting. Great start and looking forward to hearing more soon.
