UK pop darling Foxes has dropped a shimmering new single as the lead single from her forthcoming third studio album ‘The Kick’.
Throughout her eight year journey thus far, Foxes has impressed greatly and repeatedly, with aural gems such as her 2013 breakout ‘Youth’, 2014’s superb ‘Glorious’ and 2015’s ‘Body Talk’.
Sadly, despite an armful of pop gems, she’s never garnered the mainstream chart success she so richly deserves.
Here’s hoping that her new single ‘Sister Ray’, released yesterday, changes all that.
Another future-focused anthem, the single takes inspiration from a Velvet Underground song of the same name.
“‘Sister Ray’ came from a wild part of me during lockdown that was craving a night of freedom and fun again, a longing to let go,” Foxes explains.
“The Velvet Underground reference is a nod to describing the most debauched night you could ever imagine but in its spirit it’s a celebration of the people you can have those indescribable times with. I wanted to encapsulate that energy in a song so I could imagine that feeling forever.”
It’s a banger and reminds us a little of Robyn’s smash (though criminally ignored in Australia) ‘With Every Heartbeat’; albeit with a faster tempo and fuller chorus.
Bring on February 11 next year as that’s when the album ‘The Kick’ is due to land at retailers globally.
