BLACK FOXXES – A HAUNTING COVER OF ‘LOVE SONG’ BY THE CURE
BLACK FOXXES have released a cover of ‘Love Song’ by The Cure, featuring a string orchestra accompaniment; the associated video captures the band – Mark Holley, Ant Thornton & Tristan Jane – performing an intense and haunting rendition of The Cure classic in a remote Cotswold mansion. The results are unmistakably ‘Black Foxxes’.
Says vocalist / guitarist Holley: “I found ‘Love Song’ at a time when I needed it the most; it takes a lot for lyrics to stand out in a song for me, but I was genuinely floored. It was everything I’d wanted to get off my chest for months, captured in this three minute ‘Love Song’.
“We knew we had a live session coming up,” continues Holley, “and I could hear that recurring motif being played by the string section straight away; as soon as I suggested it to the guys they were instantly on board. Truly one of my favourite songs of all time now.”
Following memorable summer performances including East London’s All Points East Festival (alongside Björk, Beck & Father John Misty), 2000 Trees, UK, and Main Square, France (a particularly intense performance that saw Holley break a rib), Black Foxxes will return to the stage later this month at Leeds & Reading Festivals.
A UK run of sold-out Mark Holley headline solo shows has been postponed due to ongoing illness. Details of rescheduled dates will be announced ASAP; in the meantime, please contact your ticket provider for a refund.
