With ‘Legends Don’t Die,’ Foxtrot & the Get Down Continue to Carve a Legacy
On Foxtrot & the Get Down’s new single, “Legends Don’t Die,” frontman Colin Budny shows a fondness for — and expresses a connection with — all those who paved the way.
Indeed, many of the legends that came before the Philly-based blues rockers were once like them; wide-eyed, with big dreams, and sometimes swimming in waters filled with a few too many sharks for comfort. Some lived to tell the tale today, while others live on only in the legacy they left behind with their art.
With that, Foxtrot & the Get Down builds on its own exciting legacy-in-the-making with “Legends Don’t Die.” The new tune’s plodding, beautifully simple verses simmer before exploding with a rebel yell from Budny, which leads us into a chorus marked by crisp vocal harmonies and a signature melodic sax riff. For certain, “Legends Don’t Die” is a slice of blues-tinged heartland rock that would hold up in any era, and will surely stand the test of time as one of the band’s most memorable releases.
