Foy Vance's 'Watermelon Oranges' unveils another dimension to the melancholic, introspective mood of Foy's debut, 'Live Sessions and the Birth of the Toilet Tour'. On this new EP, Belfast born Foy, embraces the influences of America's deep south - gleaned from his early years and experiences when the Vance family lived in Oklahoma - while maintaining his trademark, emotionally connected intensity and heart-felt lyrics. The result is that he has delivered five joyous, life-affirming songs, drenched in infectious melodies that contain elements of gospel, rhythm & blues, country and soul.
Displaying a traditional and timeless approach to songwriting, these songs are classics in-the-making. They also showcase the wide range of Foy's distinctive vocal style that has the ability to uplift your spirit to the skies or make you break down in tears in a matter of seconds - from the yearning out-cry of 'Home' to the country-tinged 'Stoke My Fire' and 'Homebird' to the rhythm & blues immediacy of 'Don't Please Yourself' and 'Sometimes'.
'The whole purpose of any recording is that it represents a moment in an artist's life and I feel that this record does exactly that for me. The idea behind the EP was to create an environment that would allow the songs to breathe. I wanted this record to sound as natural as when the songs are being played live' Foy says.
