First Glances – Fox&Forest

Fox&Forest is the latest solo guise for Belgian musician Emmanuelle Meurice. I first knew Emma via her work with the prodigiously talented Nicola Testa. At that time she was very busy, having founded a promotional agency as well as being involved in various collaborations. Emma is one of those people who I call a ‘friend to music’, working quietly, but tirelessly in the background, connecting the right people without a thought for self-promotion. It’s great to see her back at the sharp end again, making music.

From initial snippets Fox&Forest strikes my mind as a subtle blend of alt-folk, quirky vocals and electronics. Compositions span indie, choral, chamber and folk-pop. The music is hushed and fragile yet loaded with suspense. There is an EP called Signs coming very soon.

For fans of Sol Seppy, Plum, Fossil Collective etc.
