SINGLE REVIEW: Foxes – Better Love
It’s been three months since we first heard the infectious “Body Talk” and with her album “All I Need” getting pushed back until February 2016 we have finally got the highly anticipated second single. “Better Love” sees Foxes returning to the synth-pop sound that lingered on her debut album. Whilst the song isn’t as instantly catchy as “Body Talk” it still delivers a punchy hook that after a few listens will get stuck in your head. “Don’t ask me how, but I always thought that we could have a better love. When you lay me down I forget that all I want is a better love”. This song is a lot more emotional than previous releases and looks at the breakdown of a relationship and the questioning thoughts she had. Bastille lead singer Dan Smith features during the bridge and chorus with his instantly recognizable vocals harmonizing smoothly with hers. On this track we do get to hear the full extent of her vocal range with some experimentation whereas on “Body Talk” she played it quite safe. With the album pre-order up now on ITunes she instantly gives you a new track called “Feet Don’t Fail Me Now”. This is probably my favourite of the three released tracks so far and has the most similar vibe to her last record. The hook is powerful, the piano and drum beat is strong and she just manages to successfully captivate me all over again. February 2016 is a long wait but I have a feeling it’s going to be worth it.
