The Foxglove Hunt is an electropop duo from Phoenix featuring Rob Withem (formerly of Fine China) and Ronnie Martin (Joy Electric). Formed in 2006, the band’s first release came out on a 3.5″ floppy disc, followed by their synth-heavy debut album Stop Heartbeat last year.
Culling from a range of influences including New Order, Pet Shop Boys, Tears For Fears, and even The Cure, The Foxglove Hunt produce upbeat and danceable tracks full of catchy electronic beats, dreamy synths, and high-pitched, breathy vocals. With all this ’80s nostalgia revival that is evident in today’s music, especially due to The Killers and their peers, one can only wonder why The Foxglove Hunt haven’t made it big yet, especially when bands like Cut Copy and Empire Of The Sun receive so much hype. O tempora o mores!
