Bio

‘Summer Storm’ is the first single from Fox + Sui’s forthcoming EP Taboo, released in October 2012 via Two Bright Lakes / Remote Control. Fox + Sui are Andras Fox and Sui Zhen, two musicians who share a love of early electronic music and the deep sea. Their new single ‘Summer Storm’ is an underwater journey, beginning with the sound of water lapping against the mixing desk. Fox + Sui met in 2010 as participants at the Red Bull Music Academy in London. Respective solo releases in 2012 quietly announced Sui Zhen as a songwriter with a knack for improvisation and experimentation within traditional structures, and Andras Fox as an electronic musician who negotiates a range of moods, tones, instruments and rhythms with finesse. As a duo Fox + Sui fold together a sophisticated selection of shared influences including James Pants, Antena and Arthur Lyman. They create their own brand of dream pop that toys with traditional pop sensibilities and finds understated revelry in the details. There’s is sound that incorporates the knowing naiveté of folk art and the considered traipse of down-tempo electronica. Stay tuned for the debut LP due out sometime in 2013.

Big, big fan right here. I love what you guys make. This one's got a tropical island storybook quality to it. More relaxing than a deep breath and a sit down. Smiles all round, thank you.
