Black Foxxes have released a cover of ‘Love Song’ by The Cure, featuring a string orchestra accompaniment; the associated video captures the band – Mark Holley, Ant Thornton & Tristan Jane – performing an intense and haunting rendition of The Cure classic in a remote Cotswold mansion. The results are unmistakably ‘Black Foxxes’.
Says vocalist / guitarist Holley: “I found ‘Love Song’ at a time when I needed it the most; it takes a lot for lyrics to stand out in a song for me, but I was genuinely floored. It was everything I’d wanted to get off my chest for months, captured in this three minute ‘Love Song’.
“We knew we had a live session coming up,” continues Holley, “and I could hear that recurring motif being played by the string section straight away; as soon as I suggested it to the guys they were instantly on board. Truly one of my favourite songs of all time now.”
