Limerick’s alternative rock quintet, Fox Jaw, release their latest single 'Let It Run', a staccato, rock and roll floor filler with a fondness of experimenting with time signatures.
Lyrically, the song speaks of letting go and embracing the chaos of what life brings. Fox Jaw frontman, Ronan Mitchell explains; “Life is what happens when you’re busy worrying about what’s going to happen. Whatever you decide to do with it; Own it. Make it yours. Let it run.”
Recorded at Even Audio with producer Mike Gavin of Windings and Mastered by Richard Dowling at Wav Mastering (David Bowie, Foo Fighters, Interpol).
Once described as ‘a modern band with an old soul’, Fox Jaw have a swaggering trend-shaking growl, that always keeps things sweet and melodic with an honest collection of dark pop songs. With hundreds of shows under their belts, 10 Singles, 5 Vinyl Releases, 2 Studio Albums, 2 EPs, 1 Live Album, countless festival appearances, TV appearances and only one flat tyre.
2014 saw the release of their 2nd studio album ‘Ghost’s Parade’, with an impressive amount of airplay, raising many eyebrows in the music industry. An album in full sonic Technicolor, verifying the bands ability & love for a plethora of genres, above and beyond the pigeonholes many set for them.
In 2016, following the success of the release of their singles ‘Do You Want It All?‘ & ‘Hit It Off’, the band released their 3rd EP ‘Black Light Vignette’ with airplay both at home and overseas, getting picked up by over 30 college stations in the USA.
Fox Jaw have played such festivals as: Electric Picnic, Indie Week (Canada & Ireland), Castlepalooza, Knockanstockan, Indiependence, Sea Sessions, AranMojo, Hard Working Class Heroes, Glasgowbury, Vantastival, Arthur’s Day & more.
