Single review: Indoor Foxes – Peach Stone

Melodic and full of heart, the new single from Indoor Foxes (Martha Barr) is a blinder. The Edinburgh artist’s Scottish accent comes through thick: the verses an economical half rap, soulful yet rugged in the chorus. Listening to ‘Peach Stone’ is akin to experiencing a particularly humbling heartbreak. The song is shot through with a super creamy guitar riff that is at once busy and laid back. The very idea of swallowing a peach stone is frightening enough – I’m hoping that it’s a metaphor – but Martha’s claim that she will as a result ‘die alone’ is haunting.
