Bio

In late 2012 Simone Macarounas had a revelation. The key was an old song of hers, Anniversary. She’d written it while in a band that she was in at the time, but kept it quiet. Instinctively, she knew it was meant for something else.

“I just kept Anniversary for me. Even through I wrote it so long ago and Little Fox didn’t even exist, I felt it needed more time to live before I did anything with it. I suppose it kept me hungry for another adventure that was a bit more personal.”

She didn’t know it at the time, but it was the beginning of Little Fox.

Flash forward a few months and Macarounas’s first low key recording, Blood & Dust, starts to catch people’s ears including the fine folks at Triple J who were spinning the track within days of it’s release. What began as a feeling starts to take actual form. Sessions with the newly-minted band and producer/arranger Tony Buchen follow. The result is a five-track EP – called simply Warrior.

The Warrior EP was more than a first step. It was a rebirth.

2015 saw the release of her new single Edits, which was accompanied by an inspiring music video featuring Lauren Watson, a paraplegic woman who choreographed an amazing aerial dance performance to the song. Created by Sam Bright and his team, a simple warehouse was transformed into an old style circus with a beautiful soft retro colour palette.

With life needing to be put on hold for a year or so Little Fox is back with her new single FAMA. An eerie, punchy, dark track that goes right back to her roots. FAMA was inspired by a little tale about a rumour that disguised itself as a beautiful bird. The further it flew the uglier and louder it got and underneath every feather was a screaming mouth repeating the rumour over and over again……… From that came FAMA.

Man oh man. What a killer tune! Love the vocals, the drums and everything else in between.

This one only lifts into this euphoric space very briefly but I kind of like it for that unassuming quality. Great swell of sounds too.

Heavy, heartfelt tune with a beautiful melody. Keen to hear more, and see what you do with those vocal effects too.
