Gareth Jay has floored me with his incredibly beautiful new single “The Fox & The Rabbit.”
This gorgeous song, featuring British drummer Ben Hooper, explores the theme of alcohol dependency in a poetic and profoundly moving way. I love the way the delicate fingerpicking guitar mimics the interplay between the metaphorical fox and rabbit. This is truly special stuff.
“For people that suffer from alcoholism, there is an ever present want for alcohol even though you know what the outcome will be. Similar to a rabbit attracted to the chase of a fox. There’s a risk at play there. That fundamentally the rabbit will succumb to the fox’s vicious objective, but the rabbit still wants to take the risk. To chase to see if he can escape this time,” Gareth, who co-wrote the song with his wife, explained.
Are you as impressed with this song as I am readers?
