NEW MUSIC: Mr. Fogg – Tightrope
by Gregorio Vincent
After the intricate beauty of “Stay Out Of The Sun” (Zane Lowe “Next Hype”) and A Little Letting Go (“Brilliant” NME, “Stunning” Dazed&Confused), Mr Fogg reveals a different side altogether with new single “Tightrope”. Described by Fogg as “a song about risks and responsibility”, this new single version distills one of the most ambitious moments from sophomore album Eleven into three and a half minutes of densely-packed flugelhorns, seething bass lines and wrong-footing rhythms.
The release comes hot on the heels of a solo european tour and a string of entries in the upper echelons of the Hype Machine Chart, and is the latest single to be taken from Mr Fogg’s new long-player, recorded in Reykjavik with Valgeir Sigurdsson (Bjork -Medulla, Feist – Metals, Damon Albarn – Dr Dee). It is a bold fusion of the organic and the electronic that is unashamed in the amount of attention it demands of its listener in order to unlock its secrets.
