York-based alt-rock band FOXHAUNT have released new track ‘Room To Grow’ alongside a nostalgic music video.
“The theme of this song is all about how you were remembered by those you have lost and that their perception of you now would be so different. This stems from wanting to make the ones you care for feel proud and ruing the day that you let them down. Lyrically this is the most emotive song on the EP and we wanted to create one which people can relate to,” says vocalist Ollie Swift of the new release.
He adds, “The accompanying video is a compilation of our FOXHAUNT journey from where we started to where we are now. ‘Room To Grow’ is a really personal song to us and we wanted a video which reflected that. We’re by no means settling for where we are, but it’s important to reflect and appreciate what we have achieved through hard work and dedication.”
‘Room To Grow’ features on the band’s upcoming 4-track EP ‘Division Culture’, out 7th April, the follow up to their critically acclaimed 2022 ‘Mindset’ EP. The new tracks were written and recorded over three months with Robin Adams (Architects, Blood Youth) in Leeds. “We wanted to write something about our take on social influences and how opinions, issues, and behaviours divide the world. I think especially off the back of the pandemic we felt like it made us reflect even more about how we act as human beings and the way we treat one another,” says Ollie.
FOXHAUNT formed in 2018 and after a couple of line up changes became the band as it is today. Their musical style draws influence from the likes of Anberlin, Linkin Park, and Don Broco and their big riffs and catchy vocals have seen them play energetic and lively stage shows across the UK with bands such as Normandie, Emarosa, and Lonely The Brave.
