Fox - Single Artwork (Layla Rose)
I managed to spot a fox outside the my tenement window in Glasgow’s Southside one evening. It was doing the rounds, checking the perimeters of this “well ken’t” back street of Pollokshields and inspecting rubbish for scraps of food. It was clearly well versed, streetwise and eager to please – moving with such elegance and prestige. For the next three nights, I kept watch out the window at spare opportunities and often managed to sneak a peak at sometimes one, sometimes two foxes together – looking and inspecting throughout the street before shooting off. It inspired a song which is essentially a night-time confession about the road-worn identities we sometimes cling to and the sly pretence of it all.”
— Zac Scott - Inspiration behind "Fox"
