Emerging in 2008 to widespread acclaim, Seattle's Fleet Foxes fused earthy, harmony-rich indie folk with a sense of lush pop sophistication that called to mind the late-'60s work of the Beach Boys, the Zombies, and Crosby, Stills, & Nash. Mixing Baroque pop with elements of classic rock and British folk, the band quickly generated a healthy amount of label interest and caught the attention of local producer Phil Ek. Signing with Sub Pop in early 2008, Fleet Foxes issued the Ek-produced Sun Giant EP followed a few months later by their self-titled debut album. A critical success at home in the U.S., Fleet Foxes fared even better in Europe and the U.K., where the album went platinum and landed atop numerous year-end best-of lists.
With Ek returning as producer, the band began recording sessions for their follow-up LP, seeking a more cohesive, live feel. The resulting album, 2011's Helplessness Blues, expanded on Fleet Foxes' lush sound and again was widely praised by critics, going gold in the U.K. and earning them a Grammy nomination back in the U.S. Following several major tours, the band entered a hiatus. Things remained quiet until mid-2016 when it was revealed that the band had returned to the recording studio. In early 2017, it was announced Fleet Foxes had signed with Nonesuch to release their third album, Crack-Up, named after an essay by F. Scott Fitzgerald. Ambitious in scope and bearing a more progressive sound than their earlier work, Crack-Up was released in June 2017.
