Last month we heard ‘Shadow’s Song‘ and now we have another beautiful dream popper from Foxes In Fiction, the title track to the forthcoming EP ‘Ontario Gothic’. It’s the work of Canada’s Warren Hildebrand, the label head of Orchid Tapes. ‘Ontario Gothic’ is available for pre-sale (out September 23 via Orchid Tapes).

Warren explains the back story, “Lyrically, ‘Ontario Gothic’ is written about a close friend name Cait who died in 2010 and to whom the album is dedicated. Cait was one of the closest friends that I had for many years when I was a bit younger. She and I became really close after I had moved back to my hometown in the suburbs of Toronto, away from a farm in rural Ontario that my family lived on from 2001 until 2004. I was coming away from what was the worst and most emotionally tumultuous period of my life at that point and I carried a lot of fucked up anxiety and deep sadness about my life and myself as a person. But more than anything else, getting to know, open up to and spend time with Cait during those first years helped open me up to kinds of happiness and a love for life that I didn’t think was within the realm of possibility at that point in my life.

She was one of the most remarkable, open and truly good people I’ve ever known, really. The song “Flashing Lights Have Ended Now” was also written about her just a point where we’re drifting apart; a year later she was gone. I wrote this song to crystallize the better parts of our friendship and to remember the healing effect that she had on me as a person which without I would not be the same person or have the same acceptance for life that I do now. I miss her enormously and I feel her influence and presence constantly.”
