Foxes: A Trolley Show

Singer performs 'Youth' on the MTS

By Ryan Bradford

It’s been a good year for dark pop acts with female singers. Chvrches, Sky Ferreira and AlunaGeorge are just some of the groups that have taken the kind of eccentric pop made popular by artists like Lady Gaga  and covered it with an extra layer of grime. Foxes, a singer from Southampton, England, continues that streak. 

In this episode of A Trolley Show, the young singer, accompanied by a lone guitar, turns her single “Youth” into a soulful ballad. While her vocal acrobatics are impressive, her act hasn’t been fully scrubbed of darkness: Listen close and you can hear the sound of the train rolling along the tracks, giving this performance a haunting, isolated feel.
