Bio

Little Fox is the spirit animal of Sydney based artist Simone Macarounas. Her first release ‘Blood and Dust’ received instant attention with triple J plays which was the foundation for her east coast tour shortly after. Produced by Tony Buchen (who now resides in L.A.), he took a simple song that was recorded as a voice memo and turned it into a heartfelt, orchestral triumph.

Soon after the tour saw the release of Little Fox’s EP ‘Warrior’. Once released it widened her audience with 5 tracks to shuffle play while drinking your favourite wine. Mostly down beat and gritty with a distinct vocal effect weaved throughout, Little Fox’s layered and textured sound won over a lot of hearts. Amongst the 5 songs was dark horse ‘Boxes’, ‘Knots’ highlighting the amazing guitar skills of Alex Bennison, and title track ’Warrior’ which featured on ABC’s Mustangs FC TV series.

Next came Edits. Though with a cleaner vocal sound she still stayed true to Little Fox’s undeniably rich sound. A song that questions authenticity in people. Acknowledging the damage of planting seeds in minds and the monsters that can grow from it. With a clip to support the release, a collaboration with Samuel Bright (film maker/director), his team, and Lauren Watson, an aerial artist from Brisbane, turned an empty warehouse into an intimate circus scene, capturing a very special performance by Lauren, whose paraplegia almost becomes invisible when suspended on her silks.

Fama was her last single before she took some time to write and develop some songs that had been playing over in her mind. Fama is simply a hard hitting track which plays on a latin fable she once heard of. A rumour, disguised as a bird, got uglier and louder the further it traveled. Underneath every feather was a mouth screaming the rumour. From this came Fama.

Now in 2020 she is set to release a new set of songs that have carried her over the last couple of years. Her next EP is a compilation of songs that explores death, tragedy, self sacrifice plus more. Working with a new producer Oscar Sharah, who's skills and musicianship are current and tasteful, Little Fox’s new wave of songs have a new set of rules. Stayed tuned.

‘Wild Ones’ is first cab off the rank. A song that provokes action for change. The importance of being heard and finding your voice. Something that Little Fox focuses on musically but more so in her personal life. Finding your authentic self and speaking your truth is extremely powerful but can a long and hard process.

EP out soon.

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.
