Sydney-based indie-electronic artist Billy Fox has just unveiled live dates and his sweeping new single 'Echo' - mixed by Chris Collins (Gang of Youths, Middle Kids, Ruby Fields) and mastered by Steve Smart (Vance Joy, Tash Sultana, Dean Lewis).
On 'Echo', Fox's gospel-laden vocals instantly reminisce of future-soul counterparts James Blake, Sam Smith and James Vincent McMorrow. Glimmering with spacious and intricately textured production, the soul-infused track glows with funk-laden grooves and sultry R&B.
Billy Fox talks about the meaning behind 'Echo':
"'Echo' is essentially a love song. However, it pays particular attention to that moment of realisation in a relationship when you understand just how in love you both are. At the infant stages, you would never had known where this was going to take you, and you don't know what you've got yourselves into. We need the courage to let go and let it happen".
To celebrate the release, Billy Fox has announced two intimate performances in Melbourne and Sydney. The hometown gig will coincide with a conceptual art exhibition; in line with themes of the song. The enigmatic musician has traversed the country multiple times selling out his own headline shows and supporting the likes of Glass Animals and The Aston Shuffle.
