Southampton’s most promising and synthiest singer-songwriter, Foxes releases ‘Beauty Queen’

leave a comment »


This week I am enjoying new track, ‘Beauty Queen’ from Southampton’s most promising and synthiest singer-songwriter, Foxes.

Synthiest; as well as being a word I have just made up, is also an example of the superlative:



  • Grammar a superlative adjective or adverb.
  • (the superlative) the highest degree of comparison.

I have also been getting reacquainted with the wonderful world of the English Language, before taking up my first home tutoring role. I studied English at A Level and for my degree and just this week discovered that, whilst other girls may be impressed by flowers or fine dining, my romantic achilles’ heel appears to be the semicolon. As Aqualung would say “…semicolon, you’re strange and you’re beautiful”.

Foxes is Louisa Rose Allen, who first caused a stir back in early 2012 with her debut track, ‘Youth’. Think Marina, meets Ellie, meets someone with a slightly earthier vocal who wouldn’t sound out of place at a folk festival – less of the falsetto but no less of the emotion. Perhaps uncoincidentally, Neon Gold Records released the debut offerings of all three artists; they certainly know how to recognise a potential mainstream, yet credible, electronic artist when they see one. As such, I think Foxes’ future is pretty much secured.



The ‘Warrior’ EP is now available to download on iTunes. / @iamfoxes
