What started as a solo project in the Midlands soon became a collective of ideas, dreams, and social conscience. Liam Vincent & The Odd Foxes go beyond being a simple sonorous conglomerate, thrilling audiences wherever they perform and building a solid foundation that many Folk outfits only dream of achieving.
Liam Vincent & The Odd Foxes – Watching You
Formed in 2020, this dream team has taken the task of creating captivating music that not only is pleasant to the ear but also that delivers a message. The current lineup of the band is composed of Rebeca Mileham (violin, vocals), Gregg Cave (electric guitar, vocals), Matt Berry (bass, vocals), Paul Disley (drums), and the founder Liam Stuchbury (lead guitar, vocals).
A very peculiar aspect of this ensemble is their rich musical background, each member comes from a different context that encompasses multi-instrumentalists, professional violinists, drummers, producers, and Folk veterans. This diversity contributes in a significant way to the overall personality of this project.
Watching You is the name of this band’s latest instalment, and as it’s the norm with this group, the lyrics are more than meets the eye:
“Watching You’ is a fast and furious tune that shines a spotlight on everything that powerful people would prefer to hide from us. Political sleaze, the erosion of the free press, and the right to protest come under fire in the lyrics” said the band.
The arrangements of this track denote Liam’s roots, spending his early days surrounded by traditional Irish folk music. Rebeca’s flawless violin rendition accentuates the frenzied riffs and high-speed tempo, resulting in a beautiful melody that resonates thanks to its impactful meaning.
Watching You is one of those gems that doesn’t limit itself to either the mood of the music or the meaning behind it, instead, it excels at proving that both aspects are not inherently attached.
Liam Vincent & The Odd Foxes have succeeded at using the power of music to communicate their vision of the world, I guess you could say that this is a profound musical speech that also happens to be an intricate song by multi-talented musicians.
