What Time Is It, Mr. Fox? is like an alchemical experiment. The band fuses and integrates different genres, theories and ideas, creating new recipes to unlock hearts and unify a room. In one set the ensemble can travel from an acoustic coffeehouse to New Orleans soul, from gothic blues to a Middle Eastern desert or the woods of medieval France. Named after a Victorian children’s game, and anchored by the “haunting, chameleon-like voice” (Metronome) of singer-songwriter front-man, Brian King, the band spins new fairy tales and steeps them in folk noir and neo-cabaret. Many songs are bustling with memorable characters like a boy who turns into a cartoon or a woman who rescues herself from a tower, while others, pure and vulnerable, “deftly explore themes of love, sexuality and identity.” (Bay Windows)
Born in Gloucester, Brian King grew up with a love of the mystical. Enamored with The Wizard of Oz, King couldn’t decide who we wanted to be more, Dorothy or the Wicked Witch. Throughout his teen years Brian fell in love with the music of Siouxsie & the Banshees, Kate Bush, and later Leonard Cohen, Laura Nyro and Joni Mitchell. His diary was documented in piles of cassettes containing hours of original music recorded on a Tascam 4-track.
