With room still to grow, they could end up at the top of their class.



'Album' of 'the Week'



Label: Spinefarm Records
Released: August 19th 2016
Rating: ★★★★

Milk Teeth, Creeper, Moose Blood, Muncie Girls - the UK rock underground continues to provide us with new talent to believe in. Over the past couple of years, that group of exciting, engaged, brilliant bands have delivered debut after debut that marked them out as something to believe in. Last week, Moose Blood graduated with a Top 10 album, breaking through to something new and exciting. This week, Black Foxxes follow them through.

As a debut album, ‘I’m Not Well’ is fearsomely well developed. It takes one listen to that opening title track to confirm as such. Exploding and retreating, it packs a whole world of emotions into one perfectly formed gem. When it finally blooms, it’s enough to raise goosebumps. Substance and sparkle, bands who can pull these tricks on their debut are few and far between.



From the growl of ‘Husk’ to the building explosions of ‘River’, with its flickering, epic guitar solo burning bright, they already sound like the finished article. With room still to grow, they could end up at the top of their class. Stephen Ackroyd
