Regrettes – Fox On The Run —-Powerpop Friday

The Regrettes are a band from Los Angeles. They have been described as “girl-group power-pop-punk.”

They are worth checking out. They do have typical older teenage rebellion lyrics but they have some punch. They are having some success in California and are about to tour Europe. I do like the way they handled this cover of the classic Sweet song. The Regrettes released their second studio album, How Do You Love? in August of this year.

Led by singer/songwriter Lydia Night, the Regrettes were all in their teens when they released their first singles in 2016. All three singles — “A Living Human Girl,” “Hey Now,” and “Hot” — show the Los Angeles-based quartet demonstrate a pop sense so keen, it could be called classicist if it weren’t for the nervy, punky energy and teenage rebellion that keep this music fresh.

Night formed the Regrettes with guitarist Genessa Gariano, bassist Sage Nicole, and drummer Maxx Morando in 2015. Night started playing guitar and writing songs when she was six, picking up pointers from classic rock and punk played around the house. She wound up enrolling in Los Angeles’ School of Rock program around the age of 12, which is when she first met Gariano and Nicole, but the Regrettes weren’t formed until late 2015. By that point, Night had several originals under her belt, all of which helped get the band signed to Warner Bros. “A Living Human Girl” appeared in the summer of 2016, followed by “Hey Now” and “Hot,” all teasers for their full-length debut, Feel Your Feelings Fool!, released by Warner in early 2017.

Early in 2018, the Regrettes released the EP Attention Seeker. A handful of singles followed that year, including “California Friends” and “Poor Boy,” continuing into 2019 with a cover of Queen’s “Don’t Stop Me Now.” Throughout the first half of the year, they issued several singles previewing their sophomore full-length, including “Pumpkin,” “Dress Up,” and “I Dare You.” Titled How Do You Love?, the album was released by Warner that August.

Regrettes cover Sweet’s Fox On The Run on the A.V Undercover Web Series

Fox on the Run

I don’t wanna know your name
‘Cause you don’t look the same
The way you did before
Okay, you think you got a pretty face
But the rest of you is out of place
You looked alright before

Fox on the run
You scream and everybody comes a running
Take a run and hide yourself away
Foxy on the run
F-foxy
Fox on the run
And hide away

You, you talk about just every band
But the names you drop are second hand (second hand)
I’ve heard it all before
I don’t wanna know your name
‘Cause you don’t look the same
The way you did before

Fox on the run
You scream and everybody comes a running
Take a run and hide yourself away
Foxy on the run
F-foxy
Fox on the run
And hide away
F-foxy
Fox on the run
You scream and everybody comes a running
Take a run and hide yourself away
Foxy is on the run
F-foxy
Fox on the run
And hide away
(Fox on the run)
(Fox on the run)
(Fox on the run)
(Fox on the run)

    1. A while back I ran across this song by them so I checked their other stuff out. I liked what I heard. I heard “Hey Now” and it’s a rock-punk type song. Fun band. Glad I found someone else that heard from them.
