Foxwarren, Andy Shauf's side project, share second single "To Be"

14 November 2018, 18:05 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Andy Shauf's Foxwarren have revealed their second soothing offering "To Be".

"To Be" follows Foxwarren's debut single "Everything Apart", that arrived with news of their debut album.

Bassist Darryl Kissick explains, “We tinkered with it for ages and ended up drastically reworking it the weekend it was recorded, but we knew early on that it was going to be the opening song on the record."

Shauf adds, “It was a guitar riff that I'd been playing for a few years at least, trying to figure out what to do with it. It went through quite a few versions if I remember correctly. Foxwarren have a bad habit of never finishing vocal melodies and lyrics before we finish the music, so it made it a bit tricky and ended up being overhauled at the last minute.”

When announcing the album earlier this month, Shauf said, “So much time and effort went into making this album; it's something I think we're all really proud of. My touring and recording schedule got pretty wild over the past three or four years, so it put the Foxwarren album on the backburner. Making the album was such an enjoyable time - the collaboration and frustration of it all. All of us trying to make something better than we previously had. I'm excited to get it out into the world and have other people listen to it. We've been a band for 10 years or so and never properly released an album, so this is special for the four of us.”

"To Be" is out now. The self-titled album Foxwarren lands on 30 November via ANTI-, and is available to pre-order now.
