Earlier this week, Montreal’s Elephant Stone released a new video for ‘Fox on the Run’, taken from their recent ‘Hollow’ LP, as well as a great remix of the band’s 2013 single ‘A Silent Moment’ by Tom Furse (The Horrors). Elephant Stone ‘Fox on the Run’ is from their sixth full-length, ‘Hollow’, which we put out earlier this year. The song is a sublime piece of ambient psychedelia that submerges you in waves of mesmerising synths, shimmering guitars and Rishi’s effects-heavy vocals –

Talking about ‘Fox on the Run’, bandleader Rishi Dhir explains: “During the writing of this track, I was listening to a lot of Yo La Tengo, specifically ‘And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside-Out’, I loved the hypnotic element to their tunes. At the same time I kept hearing reports about ICE agents taking people away in the middle of the night—people who have been in America for years and worked hard…only to be now targeted by Trump and his cronies. The song was written from the perspective of someone who just wants to be somewhere safe and with their family.”

Vince Gauthier, the director of the video, describes it a “a visual companion to the song’s playful rhythms juxtaposed against a serene portrayal of the protagonist, untroubled by the chaos tearing at the fabric of his world.” Out today, the single also comes with a B-side remix of the 2013 track ‘A Silent Moment’ courtesy of Tom Furse of The Horrors and MIEN, another of Rishi’s project’s MIEN with Tom, Alex Maas of The Black Angels and John Mark Lapham of The Earlies. You can stream ‘Fox on the Run’ and the remix below, and buy ‘Hollow’ on vinyl now.
