“Seven Years” is a hooky single from King of Foxes, the Canadian project of singer/songwriter and guitarist Olivia Street. Opening the track, trickling guitars and expressive organs provide a spirited accompaniment alongside the passionate vocals. The “it melts away,” line signals the quick appearance of twangy guitars, culminating in jangly melodic splendor.as the two-minute mark approaches. The production and vocal work captivates throughout, reminding fondly of The New Pornographers’ Neko Case-fronted works.
The track comes via the project’s third full-length album, scheduled to release in September 2022.
This track and others featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of January 2022’ Spotify playlist.
