LOCAL musical duo The Littlest Fox are set to release their fourth studio album in Rockingham.

Through the Dark features the pair’s unashamedly Australian accents and vocal harmonies, with an assortment of acoustic instruments used on the album, including guitar, cello, ukulele, piano, cajon, djembe, cornet and clarinet.

Special guest Rebeccah Moroney comes on board to contribute flute to several tracks.

Well-known for their story-telling song-writing style, Through the Dark sees The Littlest Fox link current issues with Australian history.

The album’s first single, Federation Song, tells of Western Australia’s reluctance to become part of the nation with a sense of humour well understood by West Australians, asking “why do all our friends leave Perth to live in Melbourne?”

Another song from the album, God Only Knows, deals with the bride ships that arrived early in Australia’s European history and compares those new arrivals with people seeking asylum from around the world today.

The Rockingham launch includes an intimate live performance and an exhibition of artworks by local artists.
