"Shadow’s Song (ft. Owen Pallett)" by Foxes in Fiction // Ontario Gothic (Out 9.23.14 via Orchid Tapes)
This fall will see the release of the new Foxes in Fiction album, Ontario Gothic. Foxes in Fiction is, of course, the artistic outlet of Orchid Tapes label head, Warren Hildebrand - and the new album finds inspiration in the artist’s challenges of putting his world back together following the tragic passing of his brother in 2008. Hearing that information, you know that you’re potentially in for some darker musical journeys, but you might not be prepared for how utterly beautiful those journeys might sound. Here, on the breathtaking, “Shadow’s Song”, Hildebrand is joined by Owen Pallett and Ansel Isaac Cohen in building an ethereal masterpiece of airy vocals, melancholic strings, and lush production. There is nothing but excellence at play here and based purely off of this track, Ontario Gothic has went high on my list of must listens asap.
