“New York’s The Foxfires are blazing through 2018 like an unstoppable force. The group who have been making waves with their newest release “Don’t Give Up/Choose Love”, have quickly become a favorite of fans and critics alike.”
– Louise Parker, Paste Magazine (Apr 23, 2018)
“Shoegaze gone Seagaze, The Foxfires “Slowdive” into a Surfy ambient effects-drenched indie masterpiece. Dripping in nowness, with waves of dreamy lyrical melodies cascading over some talented players, only to euphorically bring you back to shore with a glorious instrumental finale.”
– Frank M’Otion, For The Love of Bands (May 22, 2019)
“With a full length record, as well as two EPs in their six years as a band, New York indie act The Foxfires are no stranger to working hard. The band has also played in the area of some 500 shows at this point, and know that it takes a constant drive to make it as a band. That hunger comes out in their music, as well, as we can hear on their single, “Matchless Part Two”. With some of the elements that have made bands like Phoenix and The Suburbs popular, The Foxfires know how to draft an energetic, catchy indie rock song.”
