EDITORS’ NOTES

Louisa Rose Allen—the singer/songwriter behind the moniker Foxes—combines intimacy with melodrama on her debut album, Glorious. Building on a series of well-received EPs and singles (as well as the GRAMMY®-winning success of “Clarity,” her collaboration with producer Zedd), Glorious takes inspiration from the oracular theatrics of Kate Bush and Florence Welch, filtered through an au courant electropop sensibility that keeps the beats rolling and the hooks indelible. Allen has the ability to seem both charismatic and vulnerable, lending songs like the gothic-tinged “Talking to Ghosts,” the propulsive “Echo,” and the stately “Count the Saints” a heart-tugging quality that shines through their widescreen production. More upbeat tracks like “Let Go for Tonight” and “Holding onto Heaven” flesh out soulful melodies with pounding pianos and tympanic percussion. What’s most appealing about Allen is her refusal to surrender to despair—“Youth” and “White Coats” find her snatching hope from the depths of melancholy as the music rumbles and soars around her. Glorious aims high and hits the mark from start to finish.

This album is Glorious!

I'm so happy that Foxes debut album is finally released here in the US. Hands down one of the best albums released so far this year, every track is just so consistent. I can't wait for her to get more recognition in the music scene. I love this album.

"Glorious" is an understatement.

Foxes' debut album, "Glorious", not only lives up to the album title but exceeds it completely. The album opening track, "Talking to Ghosts" gives a good feel of what the entire album is like, great lyrics, amazing production, and almost haunting, unique vocals that can only be provided by Louisa Rose Allen, aka Foxes. This album has perfect balance between production & lyrics, not only matching each other in quality but truly working together to make the song, and album as a whole, simply great. With songs expressing themes of love, youth, loss, happiness, sadness, and everything in between, this album is very diverse while retaining a nice consistency that makes this project feel whole. From the gorgeous "Night Glo" highlighting Louisa's vocals & emotions to the fun "Let Go for Tonight" and to the anthemic title track "Glorious", this album has a song for anybody who appreciates a well constructed pop song or simply just beautiful lyrics. The album closes with the truly heartbreaking song "Count the Saints" which leaves us wanting more. There's a very new, unique sound that Foxes brings to the table along with everything that makes a classic pop song so great. This album is personally one of my favorites and I hope everyone gets the pleasure to enjoy this album as well. The title "Glorious" is an understatement for this nearly flawless album, but it's still a very acceptable adjective to describe every song on the track listing.
