Track Of The Day – A History – ‘Fox.’


Take one recent graduate of all female Alt- choir Gaggle, add an Australian guitarist and refuge from the London metal scene and complete the musical triangle with one of Andalusia’s only female drummers and the result is ?  A History!  Aquila Rose, Graham Alderton, and Bel Conde are A History and their début single ‘Fox’ is a dramatic glitter frosted gem that weaves a poetic narrative alongside broodingly, beautiful dark cinematic pop.

We could of course employ any number of musical aphorisms or journalistic clichés, but its best to just immerse yourself in the sound.  A History agree, they think that new music deserves to be something more than just an instant download! They have therefore invited people to ‘step inside’ their début album “Tina In The Green Dress” by creating a multi-sensory experience via a collaboration with theatre company Twisted Hip which runs from Feb 1st – 3rd 2013 at Londons Roundhouse.  The album itself is inspired by a collection of letters found by the band in an old suitcase at a flea market and follows the story of Tina after her finance, Jimmy, is sent to fight in the Vietnam War.

‘Fox’ is out 4th Feb.
