It's Australian, Post-modern, cheeky and addictive! Extrafoxx is a 5-piece rock-pop group with a uniquely engaging stage presence and quirky songwriting style that has captivated indie enthusiasts Australia-wide. When Extrafoxx performs live, venues fill with indie music enthusiasts - fans and musicians alike. Musicians are attracted by Burrell's innate creative capacity to write captivating tunes that are as engaging as they are simple. The fans are consumed his presence; an uber-personality, both on and off the stage; a loveable bear with a witty banter and modest manner. But at the centre of Extrafoxx has always been Burrell’s songs: enchanting, playful, immediate, and contagious. They’re full of insight, honesty and humour. You just can’t help but love the man, his music and his unique outlook.
The acclaimed self-titled debut marked an important milestone for Burrell being his first studio release. Taking his songs from bedroom to studio the debut was selected as “Indie Release of The Week” by Rave Magazine and rated 4/5 Stars by Timeoff Magazine. The songs are a collage of guitar-synth pop, bluesy-rock and alt-country - full of personality, attitude and sensitivity - a sublime patchwork of playful indie-pop-rock embracing the charm and simplicity of classic song-writing, the brashness of punk and the melodic feel-good sensibility that has become a trademark of Extrafoxx. The album features playful indie-pop tracks that engage you in what is sometimes a full-frontal pop assault, sometimes dreamy balladry, but always original, quirky, and compelling.
Extrafoxx are currently in production for their new EP and video clip for the single “Human Race’. The release of the new work will come fast on the heals of tremendous success with US sync placements for two songs from the album in two separate feature films, one a big budget film starring Adrien Brody, Michael Chiklis and Colin Hanks. "Out of My Head" has been selected for US feature film "High School" directed by John Stalberg and due for official release in June 2012 following festival premiers around the world since its original selection and premiere at Sundance. The band are planning a big east coast tour for later in 2012 to coordinate the release of the films and the release of their new EP.
Extrafoxx is made up of Brisbane singer-songwriter Conwae Burrell and his band, made up of Dale Peachey (the Ben Salter band, the Gin Club, Seaplane and Dollar Bar), Gillian Bright (Genshen and Loveless), Richard Buchanan, and Graham Brown (who's claims to fame include drumming for Violent Femmes singer Gordon Gano).
