Nearer My God 6/10

UNCUT - - New Albums - Third al­bum from St Louis doom­rock quar­tet

Tak­ing their al­bum ti­tle from the hymn that is said to have been played as the Ti­tanic went down, Foxing are not the first band to make a record for the end of the world. Nor will they be the last, de­spite the ef­forts of Is­lamic ter­ror­ism, cli­mate change, trade wars and more. Mean­while, we can en­joy Foxing’s prophe­cies of im­pend­ing doom, par­tic­u­larly when they’re clothed in An­i­mal Col­lec­tive har­monies (“Slap­stick” and the ti­tle track), U2 bom­bast (“Bas­tardizer”) and even avant-garde R&B (“Game­shark”). The end is not nigh. But don’t let that spoil the fun.
