Scottish Fiction are proud to present 'Birthday Flowers', the brand new single from Dunfermline alt-rock four-piece Foreignfox.

Jolting in with angular guitars and a swirling underlying fuzz, 'Birthday Flowers' immediately signals an exciting development in Foreignfox's alt-rock sound. And, as frontman Jonny Watt's distinct brogue bursts into life, the new and the familiar meet; resulting in a frantic explosion of guitars and melody.

Lyrically, the song tackles the painful topic of gambling addiction; providing an adaptation of true events culminating in the loss of a close friend's brother. Burdened with the 'the weight of responsibility’ to get it right, Watt explains; “I have close friends who’ve struggled with gambling addiction and seen the destruction it has caused. When I was first asked to write this song I had no idea how to approach it. The worst thing I think I could have done was to water it down to the point where it’s no longer what it was originally intended to be. At it’s heart, this is a dedication from one brother to another – I had to be respectful of that. I have to always be respectful of that.”

'Birthday Flowers' will be released digitally on all platforms on 15th March 2019 via Scottish Fiction.
