Fox Lake


At some point in writing their debut album Repose, Winnipeg’s Fox Lake started to lean into the reality that their band has always been about indulgent moments: of shared delight in technical flourishes, of appreciation for natural overdrive, of catharsis and group creation.

After years of refinement and revision - and an entire album on the cutting-room floor - the band leaned into such moments to craft an album rooted in the mathy-emo energy and technicality that inspired the band, but built around post-rock structures and dynamics. 

Moving beyond the tropes of fancy fingerwork and earnest shouting, the songs on Repose signal a more intentional approach to melody and nuance, a growth that is mirrored in lyrical themes of self-questioning and transition.
