“Dawn” Fox Grin|
Fox Grin is an art rock/dream pop band from Atlanta, Georgia — currently residing in Nashville, Tennessee. The band is primarily a duo consisting of Thom Chapman (lead vocals, guitars and keys) and David Bean (bass and backing vocals). The tunes feature accessible rock with full arrangements and an occasional throwback feeling. The music is not nearly as artsy as some art-rock bands deliver. This is their second EP since their debut in 2012, and they have one full-length album, Animals, released in 2013.
