Traversing rolling hills of sparse, panoramic songwriting, Fya Fox is the exciting new prospect from Ireland spinning tightly wound yarns of brooding and emotive alt-pop. A classically trained vocalist straying beyond Irelands traditional country/folk scene, Fya’s influences span from Banks, Lana Del Rey and London Grammar.
Her new single, «Body» masterfully blends Fox’s pristine and seductive vocals with intoxicating R&B-infused pop structure. It’s a compelling offering from an artist harbouring all the hallmarks for future stardom.
«Body» has already been supported by Today FM and the likes of Hot Press, Record Of The Day, Flavour Magazine, Indie Buddie + many more. The track has been added to the BBC Radio Ulster «Where Music Matters» February playlist which features ten new tracks across the BBC Radio Ulster playlist each month. «Body» has also been added to a number of prestigious Spotify playlists including «Fresh Finds» (743,637 likes).
Fya Fox’s debut single, «White Lies» received favourable radio support across the UK and Ireland including a world exclusive from Radio One’s Gemma Bradley on BBC Across The Line. The single also received praise from Irish tastemaker titles, Nialler9 and The Last Mixed Tape and was added by Hattie Pearson to the influential Co-op Edit UK playlist.
