Listen: Drop Out Venus Air New Single, ‘I Kill Foxes’

Drop Out Venus have aired a new song, ‘I Kill Foxes’, online - have a listen here. The track features on their forthcoming double A-side single, alongside ‘Elastic Teen Rent’, which will be released on 24th September via Dirty Bingo Records.

The Deptford, South East London-based trio - Iva Moskovich, Chris Moskovich and Ursula Russell - are following a self-released cassette, which featured a medley of over thirty tracks within thirty minutes.

Speaking about ‘I Kill Foxes’, Moskovich says: “This is the saddest song I’ve ever written and I borderline hate it. It started off as a joke. King HeadSwim was for a while obsessed with Bill Callahan’s I Break Horses, which is a pretty terrifying song about one man’s behaviour towards women. He used to play it to us a lot, and for his birthday I wanted to write him my own version of that song in which the roles of man and woman were reversed. The problem was that it stopped being a joke in the first five minutes of improvising the words and melody and it felt like the song kind of turned on me and became confrontational as opposed to in any way entertaining.’
