Premiere: JFK frontman James Knox launches new solo project, Francis Foxx

It finds the meeting point of Vallius Alps and Nick Murphy, and does so in spectacular fashion.

Having spent the past couple of years establishing himself as one of WA's most exciting young talents with bands like J.F.K. and Treehouses, James Knox has stepped out in 2019 with the debut of his solo project, Francis Foxx. Having covered Knox and both those acts extensively on the site, we couldn't be more excited to premiere the project's first single, Incinerate, a stunning piece of pared-back electronica in the vein of Vallis Alps and Chet Faker when he was cool. It's a bit of a curve-ball in comparison to his other, more guitar-rooted projects, but he does the job in spectacular fashion, combining subtle vocal melodies and pairing them with a soft, delicate instrumentation that'll leave your heartstrings pulled thanks to its emotive, cinematic feel."I wrote Incinerate at the start of 2018," begins Knox, "I’d been writing and releasing a whole heap of music and I had a bit of a moment where this track just clicked. It felt like me, it sounded like me, and that was really exciting."

It's obvious that the single comes from a bit of an emotive place for Knox, something you should expect knowing the no-holds-barred themes often covered within J.F.K. and Treehouses, with Incinerate in particular detailing the many struggles that come with an irregular, long-distance relationship. "My partner at the time worked FIFO and it really took a toll on both of us," he continues. "We had to spend long periods of time apart - whenever he flew out to work I’d feel so alone. It was like losing a part of yourself every few weeks." It's an exciting and beautifully-executed debut from an artist you should be well familiar with, and with Incinerate, we're looking forward to what comes next:
