Foxes (neé Loui Rose Allen) has been riding high as the UK's next great hope for empowering female pop since the release of her triumphant debut anthem "Youth" this January, and it's with great pride that we now draw back the curtain on her much anticipated follow up, as we ready her debut EP, Warrior, for release this summer. "Warrior" is the lead track, but it's thunderstealing AA-side "White Coats" that shines as the sleeper hit here, a black and white tale of search and rescue set in a distant (or not so distant) dystopian future.

The dynamic production that made "Youth" so special remains a focal point here, as a dark tunnel of scrambled vocal loops set the scene in the intro, before Lou's honey-throated vocals light the way forward through an emotional progression of volatile chords. As our tragic heroine swells with hope towards the feverish chorus, it's the gravity of her unrequited qualms that keeps it all grounded in reality, before the weight of the world comes crashing down and the track erupts in the song's arena-sized finale. "White Coats" will feature alongside "Warrior" and new demo "Let Go For Tonight" as part of a special three-track 7" and digital EP out on Neon Gold in June, watch this space and get your exclusive first taste below.
