Hey easy-listening crowd, check out London’s indie soft-rock band Young Gun Silver Fox and their brand new album “West End Coast”. If Steely Dan, Hall and Oates, or Peter Frampton are your thing, look no further than the breezy, ’70s-inspired sound of this duo act Young Gun Silver Fox: formed by AM and Ping Pong Orchestra’s Shawn Lee and Mamas Gun’s Andy Platts. Their latest, “West End Coast” is outfitted in catchy guitar licks, expansive disco harmonies, and soothing melodies reminiscent to Fleetwood Mac; which are topped off by infusions of both funk and soul. It’s a truly substantial throwback to the pivotal (and only occasionally regrettable) ’70s music era. Listen to it down below.
