NEW SINGLE – ‘Answerphone’
Mr Fogg, the widely tipped “one-man wall of intelligent electronica” (Drowned in Sound), has announced his next single ‘Answerphone’ released March 21 on his own label Kicking Ink Recordings.
The video for ‘Answerphone’ has been causing quite a stir online already, with over 60,000 views already. Fogg says of the video: “When I came up with the concept, I was told by producers that it would cost between £25k and £50k to do, so I ended up ignoring them and doing most of it myself.”
Already being described as “the best video for years” it was done totally live, one shot – no tricks or cheating.
It’s going to be quite a year for the self-confessed workaholic artist, producer, writer and label boss. As well as numerous gigs and radio sessions, including Huw Stephens and XFM, Fogg has collaborated with American History X director Tony Kaye the result of which will be revealed soon. Fogg also made a triumphant appearance at Reading and Leeds Festivals in 2010 with a full marching band and majorette which saw Fogg as the only “unsigned” act to feature on BBC TV’s main festival highlights show.
The single ‘Answerphone’ is taken from Mr Fogg’s debut album ‘Moving Parts’. Mr Fogg’s music has been described as “refined pop with modernist electronic tics” (The Guardian), “genius” NME, “sharp accessible electro pop” Q.
A UK tour has been scheduled for March and will bring the Fogg experience to a venue near you.
