Fleet Foxes

Fleet Foxes are an indie folk band originally from Kirkland, Washington. The first incarnation of Fleet Foxes was originally formed by Robin Pecknold and Skyler Skjelset, who attended the same high school together. It wasn’t until a few years later though, in 2006, when the boys emerged, and began shaking out some of the basement-born tunes live. They created new songs, scrapped the old, then created more and scrapped them too, eventually finding a few that fit just about right, along with some new friends who emerged from Seattle’s musical woodwork: keyboardist Casey Wescott (Seldom), dru ...read more

Fleet Foxes are an indie folk band originally from Kirkland, Washington. The first incarnation of Fleet Foxes was originally formed by Robin Pecknold and Skyler Skjelset, who attended the same high school together. It wasn’t until a few years later though, in 2006, when the boys emerged, and began shaking out some of the basement-born tunes live. They created new songs, scrapped the old, then created more and scrapped them too, eventually finding a few that fit just about right, along with some new friends who emerged from Seattle’s musical woodwork: keyboardist Casey Wescott (Seldom), drummer Joshua Tillman, and bassist Christian Wargo (Crystal Skulls).From the Fox den, with the help of credit cards, minimum wages, tip money, friends and family, the boys worked, crafting their first demo, and subsequently the Sun Giant EP and this debut full-length album, with family friend (and Pecknold childhood hero) Phil Ek manning the rudder.As far as the music? Robin puts it best: “We aim to be adventurous and true to ourselves and to enjoy our time together—the music we make isa reflection of our instincts. To me, the most enjoyable thing in the world is to sing harmony with people, so we do that a bunch. We love acoustic guitars, electric guitars, big rolling tom drums, mandolins, dulcimers, bass guitars, bass pedals, organs, pianos, kotos, and most of all harmony and melody. We’ve succeeded for ourselves if we’ve made a song where every instrument is doing something interesting and melodic. We try to draw from the traditions of folk music, pop, choral music and gospel, baroque psychedelic, sacred harp singing, West Coast music, traditional music from Ireland to Japan, and film scores, and are inspired by the music of our friends and contemporaries in the Seattle music family.”Source: https://bellaunion.com/artists/fleet-foxes/ « hide
