It’s tough to think of a band that has burst onto the Iowa scene quicker and with more force than Foxholes. Their unique brand of garage rock has brought them comparisons to Iggy and the Stooges, The Strokes and 80/35 alums Dinosaur Jr. Chad Taylor of Cityview may have described them best by saying “The band is reminiscent of a lot of other acts without ever feeling wholly derivative.”

Their first album, Can’t Help Myself, was released earlier this year and calls out to their influences, but still stays true to what Foxholes wants to be. Knowing who they are and what they want to be is an incredible idea to carry for a band. Working towards that goal is what every band needs to do and 80/35 provides the next step in the evolution of Foxholes.
