Biography

The best kind of road trips are the ones that are spontaneous. You know where you want to go,you have a final destination in mind ­ you just don’t necessarily know how you’re going to get there. But that’s ok, because it’s all about the journey, right? Brooklyn­based four piece, StoneCold Fox want to take a road trip with you­ they’ll get you to where you want to go, you just gotta let them take the wheel, because in the end whatever will be, will be. And the soundtrack? Their forthcoming EP, Tunnel Vision.
Tunnel Vision is a stunning contradiction­ a collection of journeys made up of distorted dance synths that bleed with a rock­heavy heart. Written, recorded and produced over a period of two years, the sound of “Tunnel Vision” resembles a mindset that is anything but narrow minded-instead, it’s a collection of tracks that skew in every which way, that ultimately steer back to it’s original course to create a wistful, cohesive sound. “Tracks started as total rock songs, then turned into chilled electro songs, eventually finding its way somewhere comfortably in the middle,” explains guitarist and vocalist Kevin. “They find middle ground with a rock core and a dancey pulse,” he adds. So, imagine a world where John Lennon is rose from the dead and conceived a love child with The Strokes while listening to LCD Soundsystem and BeatConnection ­ that’s the kind of world that Tunnel Vision creates.
Equal parts east coast and west, the four­piece, comprised of Kevin (vocals/guitar) Graham(synths/guitar) Justin (synths/bass) and drummer Aaron, came together to find common ground in Brooklyn, where they amassed an underground following with the release of their staggering debut EP, The Young in 2012. The boys took time to follow up, releasing the full length, MemoryPalace in 2014 and their return was welcomed with open arms, garnering attention from tastemakers all over the spectrum. With looks from The Wild Honey Pie to Village Voice,IMPOSE Mag to American Songwriter and more love from the world of Hype Machine, the band kept fans happy on the road, opening for acts like Mikky Ekko, HelloGoodbye, Haerts, Echosmith, The Heirs and Phases. Now, the four­piece return with their highly anticipated third studio installment.
In the first few moments of opening track and lead single from the release, “Contagion,” the juxtaposition begins with gritty guitar riffs stacked against a synth heavy beat. It’s an anthem that could go either way­ nestled amongst the breezy playlist you’ve carefully selected for yourSaturday morning spent perusing your local record­store, or smack bang in the centre of a play­list best enjoyed in the early­hours of Sunday morning surrounded by beers and friends,between the dance floor jams and go­to party classics.
The second single from EP, “Change My Mind,” best encapsulates the journey of the EP. "No nothing’s gonna change my mind / No nothing’s gonna pass me by / Alone, I lift my feet off the ground", we hear sung over steady synth hits, reminding us that no matter what happens in between, Stone Cold Fox are here to direct us to the intended destination, and damn we’re excited to get there. “It ties all the themes of the EP together,” explains Kevin of the track.“Ultimately, it’s about staying on course no matter what.”
From the nostalgic yearning of “Firing Squad” to the soulful and vintage aesthetics of “MorningLight,” to the somber build of closing track, “Polyethylene”, Tunnel Vision is ultimately a collection of journeys, and we’re lucky to have Stone Cold Fox there to steer us in the right direction.

Lyrics

American

Written By: Kevin Henthorn

Inside my house we had forgotten now
Inside my house we had forgotten how
To live in the country with three white stones
Surrounding a flag of branches and bones
Of mirrors of contracts and signed armored clad
Of the ways we play circus to hide what we had

They won’t tell me what I am to be an American
I’m here but my hearts at sea, oh they won’t speak for me

And someone spoke too soon they got caught again
And the kids they lost their breath in the revolution
They settled for houses and for small kids
To tell them the stories of when they were young
The warriors they thought they’d become
Now hide in the surface like the roots from the sun

They won’t tell me what I am to be an American
I’m here but my hearts at sea, oh they won’t speak for me

I will stay up late and dig my own trench
I’ll ask all the questions they never present
And it’s sick and its vain and it’s hard to explain
To question the role or the play of the game
Not for your founding father or for the new born threat
Not for your radical breach that you tend to forget
Not for your good mother or the weight of her debt
Not for your children at sea, but your own way to

Tell what you are to be an American
I can’t live by your words and remain the person which I came
They wont tell me what I am to be an American
I’m here but I’m loosing my cool, no I won’t wait for you.

Seventeen

Written By: Kevin Olken Henthorn

Come back I can't remember all the things you said
Come back to New York honey I won't treat you bad
Your life was over easy boiling like an egg
I know you had to leave but I can't help but beg

And I know it’s hard
And I know you’re right
And I'll call you now
But not tonight
And I know the guys
You’re dreaming of
And I know they don't
Know how to love

You got me all tied up and I can't see my frame
I walk the boulevard but girls just look the same
It's fall in Brooklyn now but I don't see the change
I need a mountain top so I don't feel deranged

And I know it’s hard
And I know you’re right
And I'll call you now
But not tonight
And I know the guys
You’re dreaming of
And I know they don't
Know how to love

I was a happy kid when I was seventeen
I had no love to lose I pictured it in dreams
You had no thoughts for me and I had none for you
I was a boy back then but now I'm broke in two

And I know it’s hard
And I know you’re right
And I'll call you now
But not tonight
And I know the guys
You’re dreaming of
And I know they don't
Know how to love you
