Sunshine Coast, QLD
Toxic Fox are busy taking on the Australian music industry. Meeting in 2017 and made up of Zephyr Jenkins (Vocals/ Rhythm Guitar), Matt Buchanan (Lead Guitar/ Vocals), Dorah Jacson (Keys/ Vocals), Richard Hall (Bass) and Jack Bradburn (Drums) they possess an obvious passion for the music. With a get-rocking-or-die-trying attitude to their career aspirations, they’re well underway in establishing themselves as one of the most exciting bands to come out of the Sunshine Coast in recent times.
The band’s debut single ‘Bond Street’ was released in April 2019, and hit over 30K streams on Spotify in its first two months. The aftermath of the release included a successful East Coast tour and festival appearance, with their live shows pulling a notable crowd.
Their second single ‘Oil Painted Hill’ is due for release at the beginning of August 2019 and was recorded at the same time as ‘Bond Street’. Both tracks were recorded at Rocking Horse Studios near Byron Bay with producer Elliot Hendich (Pond) and engineer Nick Wilson (Sticky Fingers), with additional time spent at Heliport Studio on the Sunshine Coast, finishing up additional tracks that will be released as part of their debut EP later in the year.
The band are also celebrating the addition of new member Dorah Jacson, who has been a feature of their shows for a large part of the year, singing harmonies and playing keys, as well as holding up her own solo career and playing festivals including this years Big Pineapple. A long time friend of the band, it seemed natural that Dorah become a full time feature, having played with guitarist Matt Buchanan since they were just 11 years old.
Hailing from the Sunshine Coast, their sound combines elements of surf rock with mellow ska/reggae indie beats and influences coming from the likes of Pink Floyd, Ocean Alley, Parcels and Sticky Fingers. They possess an intoxicating level of energy in their live shows, which have included iconic venues and events at Solbar, Noosa Surf Festival, Rics Bar, The Zoo, The Northern, The Vanguard and The V Room.
The band enjoyed seeing their previously unreleased track ‘Creature’ featured on Tai Jennison’s surf film ‘Bloom’, which features Taj Burrow and Brent Dorrington and represents the quintessential laid back vibes of their QLD home region.
The band move forward into 2019 with their new release, followed by a string of live shows including the well loved ‘Caloundra Music Festival’ in October of this year.
