No, I’m not going to do a joke based on “The Fox” by Ylvis.
Something that bugs me is when a solo artist takes on a stage name that sounds like a band. It’s sort of the opposite of what happened to bands like Blondie, Biffy Clyro, Paramore and Lacuna Coil, where people (well, idiots) think that the band name refers to just the singer. However, in this case the misunderstanding is more justified – after all, a plural name implies that there’s more than one person.
As such, Louisa Rose Allen annoys me just for taking on the moniker of “Foxes”. However, the video for her song “Let Go for Tonight” means I can probably forgive her. Paint fighting, food fighting and getting paint smeared on her all add up to a fun video. If you’re into synthpop, the song’s not bad either. I will point out that it’s not just Louisa getting messy, but assorted guys and girls too.
