Lush with layered guitars, infectious vocal melodies, and “instant indie-rock cred," King of Foxes' signature sound is quirky and textural, incorporating elements of Brit-pop and melodic indie rock.
"Instant indie-rock cred, led by seeing-eye guitar hooks and Olivia Street’s incredible voice, elegant and soaring but restrained enough to stay within the music instead of catapult over top of it."
- New Music Michael (http://newmusicmichael.com/)
"I fully expect Golden Armour to catch the attention of alternative rock stations across the country. It’s definitely an album Canada can be proud to call their own. If you love indie rock, strong female vocals, and just rocking out to great music, you will love Golden Armour. If you aren’t familiar with King of Foxes I suggest you take a listen, you won’t be sorry."

King of Foxes offers up something of value: a musical divining rod that pulls the listener to an inner river that is at once both familiar and uncanny. Delivered in a voice equal parts fierce and fragile, frontwoman Olivia Street’s lyrics are poetic and evocative, deftly interwoven with seeing-eye guitar hooks and a cogent understanding of songcraft. Her signature sound is quirky and textural, incorporating elements of Brit-pop and melodic indie rock that inform a well-read musical style. Lush with layered guitars, infectious vocal melodies, and “instant indie-rock cred”, the 2016 release, Golden Armour, boasts a radio-ready aesthetic of alt-rock influences and garage rawness, and the album charted on the Canadian independent music charts for 17 weeks. A new release, titled Salt & Honey, is planned for the summer of 2018. King of Foxes is the recipient of a “10k20” grant from the Jim Pattison Group, was recently nominated as an “Artist to Watch” at the 2018 Edmonton Music Awards, and was the recipient of both a Harvard Broadcasting Touring Grant and an Edmonton Arts Council grant in 2018.
