Two years after the release of their impressive debut EP (Predecessors), Pittsburgh’s Young Fox returns with Sky Beats Gold, a beautifully layered and moody discourse aimed directly at perpetual questions. Dark and driving drums lay the foundation for intricate guitar work and aggressive instrumentation combines seamlessly with soaring and confident vocal melodies. Translation: Sky Beats Gold is a big rock record that combines the drive of Thrice and the complexity of Sunny Day Real Estate with accessibility of Foo Fighters and the emotion of Manchester Orchestra. The album also features a cameo from Stephen Christian of Anberlin on the track "Slow Burn."
