- Stone Cold Fox
- The Young
Listening to Stone Cold Fox’s recent EP, The Young, it’s hard to believe that this band is just over a year old. Created through the partnership of Kevin Olken Henthorn and Ariel Loh, the band has an ambient post rock quality akin to that of Beach House with layers of flawlessly balanced synth, guitar and vocals. “American” is the catchy lead single off of the EP, rising and falling at all the right moments, with the earnest compliment of the acoustic guitar. The following track, “Give Up the Kids” stands out above the rest from the EP opening with a low solitary guitar riff and building steadily with the magically raw voice of Olken and enhanced by the mezzo-soprano back up vocals of Madeline Mondrala. With upcoming shows and more music on the way, Stone Cold Fox should not be overlooked in 2013.
