The best thing about Good Foxy’s involuntary withdrawal from the 2018 Break in the Clouds is that they’ve been saving themselves for a return to the forest; and this year’s appearance sees them treading new musical territory. Approaching the long awaited follow-up to their eponymous album, the Ribble Valley four-piece have laid down a number of album tracks in anticipation; studio sessions have replaced serial gigging and a more manicured song-writing aesthetic has seen the band hone down a heap of new material oozing subtle mood shifts but still embracing the eclectic influences that got them here. Good Foxy’s live shows take on a life of their own. Unpredictability and improvisation take more of a leading role. The inescapably assured vocal presence of singer George Banks, producer / bass player Elliot Dryden, dexterous guitar maestro Henry Crabtree, drummer Callum Sykora and recent recruit Jasper Green ensure that individual musical brilliance is always to the fore in any Good Foxy performance, just what you need to soundtrack that early Friday conviviality of a long looked forward to weekend in the forest.
