For something that sounds like a dire and looming wave of manic curiosity, “White Foxes” by Susanne Sundfør is a key brush stroke on her brand new album, The Silicone Veil. It’s electronic rush hour with Kate Bush swinging above the lanes on wire rigs; a zip-line through a blinking digital forest. Sundfør goes off the typical path quite a bit on the album, loitering in some instrumental bits and using the occasional odd example of imagery (see “gravy of your soul”), but her vocal talent is a force to rock you on your heels.
