Foxes has had a successful past year by all accounts, despite a truly brilliant debut album that did not get the recognition it deserved. However, the second album promises much of the same fantastical dreamy pop that Foxes makes so well if latest jaunt "Cruel" is anything to go by.
Southampton's Louisa Rose Allen, or Foxes to many, has taken a delicious Balearic beat and built up "Cruel" around such imposing foundations; with a steady tempo, sporadic clicks, subtle jingling bells and a viscous bass line, this record has a weighty presence full of differentiated musical elements that work together in unison. Partly slow-warped reggae mix, partly rousing dance anthem with breathy vocals, Foxes has churned together another perfectly crafted pop song that borrows elements of various genres and utilises them to full effect.
