Fleet Foxes dash aroundAustralia

The self-titled debut album from Fleet Foxes has been hailed as one of the year’s best, and next January its creators will bring those songs to our shores.

The Seattle troupe deals in grand, heartfelt folk-pop, carried by lyricism that’s a little askew with the world as we know it. While Robin Pecknold is ostensibly the lead vocalist, the band’s music is rich with multi-part harmonies, making for truly distinctive listening. We can only imagine their live show is something special too.

Fleet Foxes will of course grace Falls Festival in both Lorne and Marion Bay, but they won’t be leaving without some action on the side. Don’t be left out of the loop…

Fleet Foxes play the following sideshows on their Australian jaunt. Tickets on sale Friday 17 October.

Friday January 2 – Prince of Wales, Melbourne

Saturday January 3 – The Metro Theatre, Sydney

Sunday January 4 – The Tivoli, Brisbane

Brisbane is the same night as Stars at The Zoo.

I don't know about this. I've heard rumblings about the band lately and downloaded the album after hearing about the tour - didn't do much for me. Maybe it's a grower. It just seems very.. unremarkable. Which is not quality I look for in the music I listen to.
