Foxes! - Youth

Pick of the Week 13 - Foxes! - Youth

This is such a great song. It sounds deceptively ordinary for the first few listens, but once it grabs you there's no stopping it's uncompromising march into you sub-conscious. There's surprisingly little information about the band on-line, with only the Guardian's 'band of the day' feature revealing Louisa Rose Allen and Sam Dixon as the parents of 'Youth' in a somewhat lukewarm review. The track is anything but tepid and combines a little jangle folk-pop with a smidgen of a power vocal and a smattering of electronica to produce a rounded and satisfying bundle with possibly the best lyrics I've heard this year. Hopefully there's an LP in the pipelines soon. Don't tell me our youth is running out, it's only just begun!
