Thunder Fox is an eclectic sexual explosion of funky goodness. Featuring tight horn lines, shredding
solos, titillating vocal exploration and unforgettable live energy, this Sydney-based 6 piece is not an act
to be missed. Drawing influence from all across the spectrum, Thunder Fox have created something truly
unique and genuine; old school grit and modern innovation at its finest.

Mother Machine is the second full length EP from the band and is by far their most adventurous.
Something of a concept album, complete with some cheeky instrumentals showing off the band's
individual musical prowess, the EP brings together Thunder Fox’s signature psych-funk with harder hip-hop
flavoured grooves before being plunged into a bubbling stew of heavier rock.

Track Name: Vanilla Chinchilla
I walk down the street in a rhythm, click my hands to the step of my feet.
I daydream dark, dim rainclouds ‘til my back keeps me soaked in my seat.
My days grow ever longer now as I learn to do what’s expected of me.
At least I’m too busy to think about the fear that’s infecting me.

Call me Matthew, I’m the man of my dreams, the sound of my voice covers mountains in cream.
Then again, I fucking hate the damn sound of my voice, good thing I was given a choice.
In pain of arthritis or of tired throat, someday I’ll keep the girth of ambition afloat.
In pain of arthritis or of tired throat, someday I’ll keep the girth of ambition afloat.


I want you to love me because I hate myself.
I wanna swim inside you until my ice caps melt.
I wanna walk the tightrope on the edge of your teeth.
Balance like I do, but I get no relief.


This vanilla body tastes like me,
It’s vanilla but it melts like rain.


I don’t understand why happiness ain't natural like it used to be.
Looking back, I don’t know how I faltered, I was supposed to keep track of my dreams.
I fall asleep in a daze and I’m drunk I forget, I forget and it makes me happy.
I fall asleep in a daze and I’m drunk I forget, I forget and it makes me happy.
Track Name: Sweetheart, Settle Down
Sweetheart, won’t you settle down, because I’ve never seen you this way, I think it’s breaking my heart.
But when you sober up darling, I’ll love you just the same as if you never cut me down.

You’re much to confident when you’re blazed up.
I don’t feel comfortable at home,
You love me nice and gentle just the way that I like
But in this state, you mustn’t be alone.

Sweet, precious little flower bud,
She’s bursting colours through my head.
And speaking so garrulously in this state of mind,
Never could go that far to put me at ease.

You’re much to confident when you’re blazed up.
I don’t feel comfortable at home,
You love me nice and gentle just the way that I like
But in this state, you mustn’t be alone.

Just don’t do anything that I wouldn’t do,
You act like I hated you,
Good luck convincing me to understand.

I’m too anxious and you’re way too good at getting me into you,
I’ll make time to be a man about it if you make time for you…
Track Name: Paradise
This female wants my finance, that’s a fact.
No one gives me money without taking it back.
Superficiality takes all my attention,
So if you think that I think this doesn’t matter, you’re fucking right.

All I want is ignorance but it’s never free.
I want a mind that wants to satisfy me.
I want peace, I wanna fight, I don’t need rumination.
I wanna live a single day where I truly believe this life is a beautiful life.

Don’t worry baby, I’ve been there.
Unwanted fantasies are hard to wear.
Let’s shed our skin, let’s forget.
We’ll build a paradise in our heads.

Give me, give me time, to build paradise in my head
Give me, give me time, to build paradise in my head
Give me, give me time, to build paradise in my head
Give me, give me time, to build paradise in my head...
