Best New Band St. Louis 2012 - Foxing

The revival of late-'90s-style emo among the barely legal demographic of Midwestern indie punks is upon us, and Foxing is poised to become the movement's local torchbearer. The quintet's members — some of whom cannot legally purchase booze — are lifers in the making, having honed their craft in bands like Hunter Gatherer, Family Might, Badger Hunt and Torchlight Red. With its pedigree, Foxing could apply its skill set toward vulgar displays of technicality, but instead it opts to make the live show a passionate and frighteningly vulnerable experience. What makes Foxing unique is the strange elegance that can result from its willingness to bare its collective bones; in rare moments, the band sheds its similarities to Cap'n Jazz and resembles a less emotionally distant Broken Social Scene.
