Opening with an emphatic chorus of percussion, 'Before' is the debut effort by multi-talented music man Jethro Fox. After performing with several other bands, including Anna Lenna & The Orchids, Jethro has taken it upon himself to turn his personal home recordings into a consolidated professional effort. Structured firmly in an up-beat pop sound, Fox's vocal harmonies swoon through a constant beat of clapping that gives the track just the right level of 'twee' without becoming too abstracted. Endearing and engaging, there is certainly a great deal of potential here to get excited over.
