  • Foxes

    Louisa Rose Allen (born 29 April 1989), known as Foxes, is an English singer and songwriter originally from Southampton and now based in London.

    Allen had success with her vocal work on Zedd's song "Clarity", which has so far peaked at number 8 on the Billboard Hot 100 and peaked at number one of the US Hot Dance Club Songs. She has released a single and an EP as 'Foxes', working with Sam Dixon, and has been working on her debut album. Both tracks from debut single "Youth" were featured in Gossip Girl. She also worked with Fall Out Boy on the song "Just One Yesterday". "Youth" (and its mournful b-side "Home", and resulting remixes) have so far garnered over a million combined Soundcloud and YouTube plays between them. Her new single "Beauty Queen" was released on 13 May 2013.

    On her website, Allen explained the origin of her stage name. Allen's mother had described a “haunting and beautiful” dream in which foxes ran down their street, howling. Allen, who had been attempting to find a suitable stage name, settled on "Foxes." She found the name fitting because it reflected her music: she had titled her first song “Like Foxes Do" and many of her subsequent songs were about animals.
