It's a statement of pop defiance...

Foxes has shared her new single 'Friends In The Corner'.

The songwriter - Louisa Rose Allen - has been searching for escapism in these lockdown times, an energy that fuels her new single.

Out now, 'Friends In The Corner' is a statement of pop defiance, a colour-soaked bop that longs for a way out.

Foxes comments: “It was a weekend away with a close group of friends and I considered them to be strong and together, but for some reason at that time they all showed a vulnerable side I’d never seen before. It might have been the age we were at, but everyone’s hidden struggles came to the forefront and it made me realise the older we get sometimes the more fragile we become.”

“It really hit home that we shouldn’t take each other for granted and we’ve really got to look out for our friends. It’s becoming more and more apparent that we all suffer from mental health issues on some level and at different times in our lives. There really shouldn’t be any stigma around this anymore. We’re all in it together.”

The video is a dramatic narrative, with Zara Gabiddon and Natasha Trigg as two friends on a Thelma and Louise style road trip.

There's a buoyant, escapist feel, with lingering darkness in the shadows - also, watch out for Foxes guest-spot as a tattooist.
