Last weekend, we discovered a brand new band, quintet Stone Cold Fox. Stone Cold Fox has a young American indie rock sound that’s more than about just partying. Lyrically, every song was crafted beautifully, showing their mature songwriting capabilities. Their set was vibrant, young, nostalgic and reminiscent of the perfect summer NYC night. To my surprise, this Bushwick Music Crush put some much-needed spring fever into my heart.
Kevin Olken (lead vocalist/guitarist) and Ariel Loh (producer/synth) founded the rock band while attending SUNY Purchase upstate. The duo was later joined by Justin Bright (electric bass/bass synth), Graham Stone (guitar, backup vocals) and David Tedeschi (drums). Kevin Olken has a memorable voice that compliments well with the other bandmates energetic pace. The arrangement and production value are top-quality while still maintaing an organic, unforced feel. Listen to “Stone Cold Fox” by the band above.
The internet is buzzing with positive feedback for this quintent collab. Their EP, The Young, dropped last summer and has gained notable attention. From being featured in Filter Magazine to having their latest video featured on MTV Buzzworthy, the band is gathering a supportive crowd. Check out their video below for single,. “Seventeen” which features all the guys trying to cheer up their heart -broken mate Kevin.
If you didn’t get a chance to hear them live, their next show will be for the Earth Day Festival in Union Square Sunday, April 21st.
