Review: Foxes

Firstly, I know that Foxes isn’t a band, but hey I’m not going to split hairs if you don’t.

Bursting onto the scene in the latter stages of 2013, Southampton born Louisa Rose Allen, better know by her stage name Foxes hit the big time with her début single Youth being used on TV shows such as Gossip Girl and gaining nearly 4 million views on YouTube, not bad for a song for about reluctance to accept growing up, something that people reaching the grand old age of 24 have to deal with.

It’s taken a while for Louisa to get signed to a big label, with a wide release, but it has meant that she could build up a strong support around the country, with tours of smaller venues and via social networking, this in some respects has worked in her favour, leading to collaborations with Fall Out Boy on their latest album and creating the kind of underground buzz that most musicians can only dream about.

Foxes sound is a mixture of electro with  atmosphere meets indie pop, combine that with Louisa’s amazing voice, you end up with a recipe for success, leading me to believe that Foxes is going to be one of the break out artists of 2014, with her début album, Glorious expected in early May, just in time for the start of summer festival season, expect to see a lot of her this year, though like me, you could get in early and see her on tour this Spring.
