Q&A Scene: Darcee Fox

Tell us about your new single/ album/ tour?
We’ve just released our debut full-length album called ‘Islands’ – its basically 13 no bullsh*t, rock n roll choons, plenty of  balls & dynamics (the basic building blocks of a great song) – regardless of what your tastes are, there’s at least one song on this album that you’ll love.
What’s your favourite work at this point in time? (your own or your group’s work)

Without a doubt, our latest record ‘Islands’, which is available now through BigCartel/iTunes/Apple Music/Google Play/Spotify/Pandora, etc.

Tell us a quick, on the road or studio, anecdote.
Once our drummer managed to drink a whole beer in under 10 minutes – it was wild.

What, or who, inspires you?
A large part of our inspiration stems from the music created by our heroes – Led Zeppelin, Hendrix, Guns n Roses, The Rolling Stones, etc. – ultimately the music that made us want to make our own music in the first place, but naturally we also draw inspiration from the things that happen to (and around) us, and those unfortunate enough to spend considerable amounts of time around us.
Which song do you wish you wrote?
Refugee – Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers
How would you describe your sound in food form and why?
“Like warm apple pie” – Chris Klein as ‘Chris “Oz” Ostreicher, in the 1999 teen sex comedy American Pie.
The ‘why’ is the same as the ‘how’.
What’s next for you?
Keep trying to push this record to all corners of the earth until we kill each other or die in the process – if we survive then we’ll most likely make another record, and again our individual & collective mortality will be determined by the outcome.
