Monday: Paper Foxes – Pop Confessions
Paper Foxes are a rock band from the shadows of Arizona’s underground music scene. Termed “death disco” by Phoenix New Times, the quintet have cultivated their sound from a mixture of post-punk and New Wave influences, leading one fan to describe them as “a missing link between New Order and The Strokes.” Their cult following has propelled them to appearances with Hunny, Poptone, Dreamers, The Chamanas and many more acclaimed touring acts, while their EPs “Devil on My Shoulder” and “Strawberry Lashes” have garnered frequent radio play and the keen interest of the regional press. Comprised of CJ Jacobson (vocals/guitar), Uche Ujania (vocals/bass), Patro Gaston (synths/vocals), Jahlani Ujania (drums), and Oliver Lemke (guitar/vocals), Paper Foxes are currently preparing their first LP “Pop Confessions” with the help of legendary producer Bob Hoag.
