Our new album is out this week...


‘Evidence – the third album with Modular Moog-obsessive Ben ‘Benge’ Edwards, ferries the listener to a paranoid, dystopic, late-night city soundtracked by dense, pulsating synths, glacial melodies and ethereal half-sung, half-spoken vocals. Foxx’s creative fires still burn white hot.’ 4/5 MOJO

‘His relationship with young producer Benge has seen Foxx release his best music since the glory days of early Ultravox and debut solo album Metamatic, and Evidence is even more brimful of sci-fi sensuality than last year’s The Shape Of Things. Highlights include the dark house of Matthew Dear collaboration ‘Talk (Beneath Your Dreams)’ and two centre-piece excursions with Brighton electro maverick Gazelle Twin.’ 4/5 UNCUT

‘Foxx’s legacy has come to be revered, with his influence on electronic music recognised by the likes of The Orb and LFO. Evidence, Foxx’s third album in 3 years with The Maths, provides plenty of evidence why. The tracks are crafted and atmospheric and the collaborations serve to anchor the album in the present rather than the past.’ THE WIRE

‘Evidence offers 15 tracks of escapist, dreamlike ‘ballads’, glowing with sprawling analogue paranoia and grimy, debased atmospheres. The beauty lies in the music’s simplicity, of which the duo revel effortlessly throughout, as if they couldn’t be having more fun if they tried.’ 8/10 BARCODE

‘Foxx has refreshed his creative music with consistently excellent work in recent years. Lush and romantic, Evidence is the kind of timeless electronic album you can dream inside.’ 8/10 CLASSIC ROCK

‘The new John Foxx And The Maths album is quite something. A beauty.’ ELECTRONIC SOUND

‘The mood is dark and unsettling as Foxx combines the icy beauty of ‘My Town’ with the eerie ‘Changelings’, featuring the haunting voice of Gazelle Twin.’ 4/5 CLASSIC POP

‘A pulsing electro cover of Pink Floyd’s ‘Have A Cigar’ might be an unexpected (though warming) surprise, but the closing quartet of ‘Shadow Memory’, ‘Walk’, ‘Myriads’ and ‘Only Lovers Left Alive’ sees Foxx and Benge simmering in exquisite fashion.’ 4/5 RECORD COLLECTOR

‘The third album from the cutting edge electro innovator’s adaptable outfit is another classy blend of off-kilter ambient atmospheres, dubbed dreams and general analogue silkiness. Pink Floyd’s ‘Have A Cigar’ gets re-rolled but Foxx’s own compositions exert a compelling fascination.’ 4/5 DAILY MIRROR

‘Rather than treat their analogue synthesizers as museum pieces, John Foxx and his electronic producer partner Benge have cranked their machines into life for a succession of albums of futuristic electronic pop. This Dark Lord Of Synth still wields fearsome power.’ Q MAGAZINE

‘Foxx has embraced technology to create something otherworldly, chilling and at times dream-like on an album that hangs together beautifully.’ 4/5 VIVE LE ROCK

‘Subtlety and ambience is the thing here. This garden of seemingly straightforward songs is nothing of the sort; it’s an analogue world of shifting details.’ 4/5 GAY TIMES

‘Lush basslines and dubby synths aplenty inducing a spaced out, slightly experimental but visceral vibe throughout.’ 7/10 FUTURE MUSIC

‘Ever since he started making music John Foxx has always sounded contemporary – and here, more than 35 years on, that remains the case. As a consequence Evidence is a mandatory listen for long time followers of Foxx and electronic music – but also for those new to the form.’ 5/5 DMC WORLD

‘If you already own John Foxx & The Maths’ previous albums Interplay and The Shape of Things then you need this album. If you don’t own those records then you need all three, and what a treat you have coming your way.’ 4/5 THIS IS NOT RETRO
