First Listen :: Follin - Roxy
Words: Ellie Ward
It might be just their first single, but brother-sister duo Madeline and Richie James Follin, otherwise known as simply Follin, are certainly pulling in praise for 'Roxy', being picked up by both Zane Lowe on his Beats 1 radio show and John Kennedy on Radio X.
Madeline (of Cults) and Richie (of Guards/Willowz) having finally realized an idea for working together, and inspired by distorted synthesizers, drum machines, samples, harmonizers, tape effects and atmospheric sounds they experimented with, 'Roxy' - out now via Father/Daughter Records - emerges as a brooding pop jam, utilising keys and synths and a distorted edge to Madeline’s voice.
