Black Foxxes have released a new video for single, ‘Manic In Me’. The song is the second to be revealed from forthcoming studio album ‘Reiði’.
Iceland, with this unique and spectacularly scenic land, provided a primary source of inspiration for the writing of forthcoming album ‘Reiði’ (the Norse word for rage); and so, the band (Mark, Tristan and Anthony) felt it vital that the video for ‘Manic In Me’ be shot there.
Mark Holley, Black Foxxes frontperson, says, “This song is purposefully written to have a pop structure, I wanted the song to sway back and forth in a repetitive manor to inject the listener with the hooks. The song is about balancing inner rage and calm; ‘You are the weather’ refers to feeling still and serene amongst another’s company; ‘I am the manic in me’, quickly interjects that, on my own, I can’t control the inner manic. It’s this back and forth that continues throughout the song, quickly transitioning between verses and chorus without any chord changes, keeping the listener guessing which side the coin will land. Calm or manic.”

It’s plain to see that the influence of such idyllic surroundings has been a positive thing for the band and you can hear the rest of the album when it’s released on March 16th.
