Created over the course of nearly three years, Nearer My God was produced in St. Louis and Montreal by Walla and Hudson, with additional help from Joe Reinhart (Hop Along, Modern Baseball).
It’s a post-apocalyptic melodrama about control in a world that really, really feels like it’s falling apart. Expertly-executed by vocalist Conor Murphy, guitarists Eric Hudson, Ricky Sampson, and Jonathan Hellwig on drums, Foxing shines their collective brightest on this record, especially on tracks like “Grand Paradise,” “Gameshark,” and “Heartbeats.” Here, they combine elements of anthemic indie rock, avant-garde R&B, classical and more to create some of their most original and strongest material yet.
Earlier this year, Foxing released the first of four episodes of a limited podcast series called Nearer My Pod. Hosted by Dan Ozzi (Noisey), Nearer My Pod is an in-depth look at the making of the new Foxing album Nearer My God, featuring insight from band members Conor Murphy, Eric Hudson and album producer Chris Walla (Death Cab For Cutie, The Decemberists).
