FLEET FOXES - "GROWN OCEAN"
Helplessness Blues is the beautiful follow-up to the Fleet Foxes' 2008 eponymous full-length debut. Helplessness Blues took over a year to record and was born out of a difficult creative process. The result sees these Pacific North West folk-rockers exploring more intricate arrangements and psychedelic folk influences. Robin Pecknold's lyrics have shifted, focusing at looking beyond the self and tackling all that is uncertain. However, staying true to form, the tracks are at heart comfortingly simple, each enveloped with warm layers adding brightness and depth.
Check out the track "Grown Ocean" for a taste of Helplessness Blues out now on Sub Pop and Bella Union.
