After getting the blogosphere's collaborative head in a tizzy with her debut single "Youth", Louisa Rose Allen, who records under the moniker Foxes (not to be confused with the similarly named Foxes!, or The Foxes, or indeed Fleet Foxes for that matter) seems to be on her way to uber-stardom. Now with an E.P release on the super trendy Neon Gold label forthcoming (which helped to launch the career of Ellie Goulding and The Naked and Famous, amongst others), she has released a taster track to whet the appetites of those awaiting the second coming of noise. But is it the track any good?
The answer is indeed, a yes. "White Coats" might have the sound that seems to appeal firmly to the underground, but there is no denying that this is firmly, and proudly, a pop song. It's like someone has tried to find a cross between Phantogram and Marina & the Diamonds, with the slider very much in Marina's favour. This song will be inescapable next year once Foxes inevitably gets picked up by one of the major labels and it gets a full single release, so enjoy the song while you can before it becomes completely ubiquitous.
"White Coats" is taken from the E.P "Warrior", which is out in June, and is available to download for free.
