Having already been described online as a “space sex death match”, the brand new video from Sydney producer, writer and musician Billy Fox for his silky new single Mystery is already widening pupils for its execution of a clever and scientifically accurate sci-fi retro romance.
It’s been an upward incline of late for Fox whose smoky, electronic RnB soundscapes have been touted as following in the footsteps of James Blake and Sam Smith since the release of his debut single Monuments late last year. UK blog The Line Of Best Fit premiered Mystery and called it: “…a shivering, saccharine, emotion-packed song; the sort of tune that allows you to drift off and relax.”
And now the Billy Fox machine has a live show. His recent slot in front of a mid-afternoon crowd at the Sunshine Coast’s Big Pineapple Festival roused a big response as he slipped out a set of originals, live remixes and a (very) cheeky cover of an Australian classic. With a debut seven-track mini-album due for release soon, Billy Fox is one member of the burgeoning Aus electronic scene whose songs not only transcend the homogonised but also are here to stay.
